What is wrong with just calling the airport Kaliningrad Airport?
Nothing except it was standing on the way of our liberal jiurnalists pretending to be patriots - it is nation-wide campaign
Don't you find that title ironic with two American airliners under it
I do not know if it is ironic, but measures to support our civilian airplanes industry by banning Rus airlines from using foreign-made planes are discussed for at least last 20 years, since the time first Russian airlines recovered from USSR collapse enough to start buying planes. Now production of Il-96 restored, MS-20 undergoing tests, Sukhoi SJ approaching 200 planes built etc.
novaya gazeta wrote that Supejet was made 80% imported components
Avionics -Thales, life support syst- liebherr, chassis - messier-dowty, fuel system - intertechnique-zodiac, interior and oxygen system - B/Aerospace ( ?). firefighting system - curtiss-wright/autronics, crew seats - ipeco, electrics - hamilton sunstrand, wheels-brakes - bf goodrich etc.,doors from boeing, russian is AIUI planer and parts of engine. the whole plane was 4 tons heavier than planned, hence some parts need much more maintenance than comparable aircraft - manual stated that after every 2000 flight hours aircraft needed body frame strenghtening at 8 places.
aftersales service is unexisting - yakutian airline had 5 aircaft, just 1 in flying condition, just now brussels airlines dropped SJ due to expluatation problems.
