Maxim Pyadushkin writes:Russia's fifth-generation fighter prototype, the Sukhoi T-50, is continuing flight trials. Two more took place from Komsomolsk-on-Amur on February 12 and 13. For the second flight the first T-50 prototype was painted in an air force white-grey-blue camouflage similar to that of the second Su-35 prototype. The aircraft has also been given side-number (Bort) 51.A Russian defense ministry official says the aircraft will make several more flights from Komsomolsk-on-Amur. In March or April the T-50 is expected to be transferred to the Gromov flight research institute in Zhukovsky, near Moscow, where the test program will continue. The aircraft will also be presented by Sukhoi to top government officials.Picture Credit Sukhoi
