When the Russian press announced in April 2010 that Uganda had bought the Su-30, the country denied it. But the presence of An-124s early July was predicting something already. When the first assembled Flanker did its engine runs on July 8, half Entebbe could hear it. On Mo 11th, AF 015 made its first flight, followed by AF 011 on Tu 12th. The 45-min flight was concluded with a spectacular demo. Some Ugandans are less impressed; they wonder if the money spent could not have been allotted to other goals.

In a country where you buy a casket on the side of the road, I'd say that the funds could have been better spent.

You have to give the Ruskies credit for this one, it's a gorgeous plane.
