SU-37 ARRIVES "FASHIONABLY LATE" TO PARIS AIR SHOW.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 120
Russia’s newest fighter design — the Su-37 — has made it to Paris after all. It was a no-show when the exhibition opened on June 14 in what Sukhoi officials explained as bureaucratic bungling by the government in Moscow. (See Monitor, June 16) A government spokesman yesterday denied that charge and said that the tardy submission of required paperwork had been caused by the "disorganization and negligence" of the Sukhoi design bureau itself. The show runs until June 22.
The fighter was an immediate hit in Paris. Sukhoi received an award sponsored by the journal Flight International for the vectored-thrust aircraft which can perform such maneuvers as a "somersault" involving a vertical rotation of 360 degrees. (Russian news agencies, June 18)
