Superjet Disappears Off Radar In Indonesia Part 1

Very sad to hear that. Sukhoi super jet Registartion 97005 was here at Karachi for demo flight but it was cancelled due to first officer sick. On Sunday another sukhoi airplane arrived here for one night only. I want to know was this the same aircraft? When did it arrive in Indonesia for demo?

Is this flight operated by B777-200LR aircraft?
They must be having the double set of crew for sure.

The actuators installed on B77W are called Semi levered gears (SLG).
As the same pilot flies the both B772 and B77W, so Boeing has installed these SLGs in B77W to prevent tail strike in case of over rotation or high angle of attack. These gears are not installed on B772LR.
