Rain dampens final day of MAKS air show

The final day of the MAKS International air show is being marked by spectacular airborne displays of death-defying aerobatics, performed by some of the world’s finest aircraft and pilots.

The weather has not been kind, but rain at the airfield has failed to dampen the spirits of spectators who are pouring in to get a glimpse of the wares on display. Chief among the attractions are Russia’s first 5th generation fighter jet PAK FA (T-50), world’s biggest passenger aircraft Airbus A-380, and Russia’s new Sukhoi Superjet passenger plane. More than 200 other aircraft, new and old, are also drawing interest from visitors.

Russian aerobatics teams the Knights and the Swifts will be again performing in the skies today – if the weather allows.
