P.Butowski - Regional Rivalry /Commercial/
This model of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional aircraft was exhibited at the Farnborough International Airshow this year. First flight is expected by the end of 2007. The greatest demand at present is for the 95-passenger variant in single economy-class layout. Note also the new logo of the Sukhoi company.
Comparative side views of the Antonov An-148-100 and Sukhoi Superjet 100. Although both aircraft are twin-engined, the two companies have adopted considerably different wing and empennage configurations
This view of the second prototype of An-148, UR-NTB, clearly illustrates the type's clean lines, and shoulder wing and 'T-tail' configuration. Equipped with an airline interior, it made its maiden flight on April 19, 2005.
