MS-21 was first shown to the public plane
• MC-21 aircraft for the first time revealed to the general public
Yesterday morning, in the Irkutsk aircraft factory at the ceremony of the rollout of the first prototype of a new medium-haul MS-21-300.
Still, not every day you show a completely new civil aircraft, and even this. What? Look!
In the spirit of the late-Soviet officialdom aircraft met Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and other officials. And in general, people have been set.
Let loose the fog ... but for him to guess the big unknown, new. Meet the MS-21!
Roll-out - this is the bride, a small bag still can not walk or talk, but everyone is a lot of positive emotions.
The experts are wondering, what he looks like: on the A350, Boeing 787? The inscription on the nose clearly indicates whose name in MS-21 - Yakovlev, Alexander Sergeyevich!
MS-21 - an international product. Ideas of Russian engineers implemented on European and American machines, foreign chips led by Russian programs.
The key difference between MS-21 from all competitors - composite wing. And it is very unusual: performed by vacuum infusion technology. To not load details, our wing easier and cheaper to manufacture.
Because of this wing of our aircraft can fly faster, "Airbus" and "Boeing".
The engines made the company Pratt & Whitney. They are unusually large: bypass ratio greater than 12. Thanks to them, the MS-21 will consume far less fuel than today's airliners, and yet he will not strain the noise of the residents adjacent to the airport area.
Russian AP-14 is also on its way, it will be slightly smaller in diameter, but also very economical.
But we, the passengers, most of all like inside: spacious and light. However, living with the aircraft cabin today do not show: the first flight model will be starting the control and recording equipment. Now we can pay attention to the large diameter of the fuselage and huge windows.
But the machine was photogenic. I wonder how it will look in the livery of "Aeroflot"?
Furthermore MS-21-300, which can accommodate up to 211 seats, will be created and MS-21-200 with a smaller length of the fuselage, there will fit up to 176 passengers. It's 20-30 seats more than the A320 and A319, respectively. But our MC-21 easily rivals.
For the pleasure you have to pay. List price of MS-21 will be at catalog price, "Airbus" and "Boeing" of the current generation, but the performance will be better than remotorizirovannyh A320neo and Boeing 737MAX.
How do you like the plane? In my opinion, it is very nice to get!
Here is a beauty!
