Looking fantastic! Fully new Russian-built aircraft (developed by Ukraine and Russia together) - today is a star of Pulkovo and Sheremetyevo airports. First commercial flight of Rossiya Airlines on this plane - historical moment and very important day of me - I was on a board and took first photos!

Actually, it's the second airline that uses An-148, the first one is Aerosvit.

Which plane did the Russians try to copy this time (A320)

Looks like a Bae145 with 2 engines or a Dornier 328Jet on steroids. Either way, a nice update to a proven design.

Great! It seems to be one of the best Ukrainian aircrafts!

"Fully new Ukraine built aircraft" - not exactly. An-148 is designed in Ukraine and produced both in Kiev (Ukraine) and Voronezh (Russia). This one is built in Voronezh, though it contains many parts made in Ukraine (as well as Ukrainian-built aircrafts contain some parts produced in Russia).

the only similarity with a320 is probably the fact that both are twin jets :P:P

A great photograph taken under difficult lighting conditions. Wonderful exposure and detail. It almost makes you feel you are there in the cockpit looking over their shoulders. Not to mention .. how often does one get to see the cockpit of a Russian airliner. I thank you Mr. Belenkov.

Nice photo. I'd like very much to fly an-148 some day.
Remark to "Fully new Ukraine built aircraft" - this plane and the first AN-148 in Rossiya's fleet were made in Voronezh aircraft plant, thus, it is not fully Ukraine built.

Nice aircraft! Congratulations again Antonov it's nice and not expensive plane, by the way it's more Russian than Ukranian yes, it's a joint but Russia have a bigger part of the cake

The plane - an Ukrainian, and aircraft engineering school - Russian. Anyway, both of them are pleasant to me.

Though.., it is necessary to notice that it is generally made in Russia (in Voronezh) and on 70 % consists of the Russian accessories and details.

A great shot of a cockpit and the pilots of this beautiful plane with all systems running! Hope to be able to sit in it someday.

You must be blind, other than the fact that they are twinjets, they have as much in common as with a Boieng 747.
