Thanks for sharing this great photo! Glad to see the SSJ get airborne! Hope the jet makes its way into some Indian carrier! :D -Sreenath Yellamrazu.

What is the looong stick thing on her nose used for? I wish this type of aircraft's performance and its future will be better then how it looks. Thank you for sharing this great moment!

Great to see this plane flying! - The long stick I beleive is a pre-calibrated pitot static tube (for measuring airspeed) its long like that to take it out of the airflow around the plane because like I said, its pre-calibrated... Im pretty sure thats what it is anyway

The stick on the nose is for gathering flight data and is only installed on test planes. the final version of the aircraft which will go to the operators will have a standard nose cone.

Great photo, looks like this machine will do well! The "long stick" is an air-data probe that gives extremely precise measurement of airspeed. It helps during flight testing and also to calibrate avionics etc. Sometimes these probes might give other information like angle of attack, air temperature etc.

Now this Airliner looks better than the 787, A350, and A380! GREAT SHOT!

What a beautiful aircraft. I would love to see this plane perhaps find use with U.S. carriers.

Looks like an Embraer 170 with A321 engines in my opinion. Great capture!
