PAS11: Russia drops Su-30 from Paris Air Show line-up

su-30mk credit sukhoi.jpgWe contacted the Paris Air Show organizers after seeing this tweet from @ReutersAero this morning:

Anyone else hearing Su-30 (NATO: Flanker) pulling out of Paris air show? Russian comeback was to be a theme this year //

And the verdict is: It’s true. The Su-30 has been pulled from the flying display and the static line.

According to a show spokesman, Sukhoi had confirmed the Su-30′s appearance about one month ago. But the organizers received a follow-up message a few days ago from state-owned Russian Technologies, which canceled the Su-30′s trip to Paris. The Russians gave no explanation for the about-face.
