Yet it is still unclear whether human error or shortcomings of the aircraft disaster at the airport Moscow-Sheremetyevo, with 41 deaths, according to the Russian news Agency “Interfax” writes. But the Drama extended the pleasant history of the super jets from Sukhoi civil aircraft to another dark Chapter.
it was originally Planned that the project Superjet Russia should heave in civil aviation on the world map. For decades Sukhoi had built for the USSR, especially fighter planes and bombers. Today Sukhoi civil aircraft to the aerospace consortium United Aircraft Corporation, which belongs to the majority in the Russian state belongs to.
In the year 2000 after the country had what do you mean from the ruins of the Soviet Union to some extent, began planning for the first civil Aviator. In 2008, when Russia makes it back to his Big ambitions, remembered, took place the first flight.

But unlike the competition, the Superjet has never been the darling of the Airlines: Total ordered so far, only about 400, 130 have been delivered to date. For comparison: the Embraer E190 over 10 Times as many in the air.
The above-average frequent incidents have not helped to eliminate the skepticism on the Jet, even if in no error, the machine carried the debt: in 2012, a Superjet in Indonesia, flew a demonstration flight in a mountain. All 45 occupants were killed. 2013 Superjet laid in Iceland, a crash landing, the Pilot was not injured. And only in the autumn of last year, the machine skidded in the Russian Yakutsk so crazy about the runway, although no one was seriously injured, the Superjet but suffered a total loss.
