Hi all!!!

I'm A n00b here so, i'm sorry for any inconvenience.

I've heard on Portuguese national TV station, that Portuguese Government will probably accept 4 Beriev Be200 from Russia.
Russia is paying part of an old debt with these 4 airplanes.


Ehat do you think of this airplane?
is it any good?

Thanks in advance for any repply.

I'm sorry for my bad english.

P.S. -> I'm here to learn, 'cause i just love airplanes, so pleaseeeee take it easy  Smile Thanks!

Actually, that is not correct - Russia is trying to pay the debt (or part of it) with the aircraft. The only thing is, Portugal hasn't decided yet if it is taking the aircraft as payment.

Currently (in this fire season) one aircraft is based in Monte Real, fighting forest fires on a trial basis. In the end of the season an evaluation of the behaviour of the aircraft will be made to decide wether the aircraft is fitted for the mission profile required to fight forest fires in Portugal - if it passes the test then the Portuguese government might take them as part of the debt repayment.



Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!
