RAA 2012: Superjet meets press 2 weeks after crash

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — Superjet International still can’t say anything about what caused the 9 May crash of a Sukhoi-piloted Superjet 100 on a demonstration flight in Indonesia. The hunt for the digital data recorder continues, though the cockpit voice recorder has been recovered. 

But Superjet also surely did not want to hide from the press, so the joint Alenia-Sukhoi marketing arm went ahead with their annual press conference today at the Regional Airline Association convention. Sukhoi re-affirmed its support for the Superjer 100 programme, and confirmed there has been no changes to the manufacturing plan.
