The Sukhoi PAK-FA or T-50 fifth-generation Russian fighter, star of last week's MAKS air show in Moscow (which I blogged on yesterday), features on the cover of the latest Flight International, out today (23 August).
In the issue, you can read our report from the show, together with the magazine's leader on the future of Russia's proud aerospace industry. We have the latest on Qantas's A380 deferrals and the views of Ascend analyst Chris Seymour on why size matters more than ever in the narrowbody segment.
In our special feature on defence helicopters, Craig Hoyle looks at the record and prospects of the UK's Boeing Chinooks, and its helicopter assets as a whole. Stephen Trimble assesses the USA's rotorcraft materplan, and asks why it is easier to protect military helicopters from advanced smart weapons than bullets and RPGs.
