Ukraine's Aircraft In The Sky Again

Ukraine's Aircraft In The Sky Again April 1, 2017

Ukraine carried out the first flight of Antonov AN-132D. The aircraft was manufactured without supplying parts from Russia, with whom Ukraine experience significant military problems. The ceremony was attended by Ukrainian President Petro Porosenko. In the past, the same plane was produced as AN-132, but there were many Russian parts in the plane. Instead of these parts, now the engine, avionics, power unit is being supplied from the western countries. Ukrainian officials also note that Turkish parts can be used on the plane if Turkey would show an interest.
