South Korea buys some light planes from Russia

South Korea has purchased from Russia 23 light Il-103 aircraft developed at the Ilyushin air complex, its leading specialist Alexander Shakhnovich told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

"The aircraft are being manufactured at the Lukhovitsy plant in the Moscow region, and will begin to be delivered beginning in the second quarter of this year," he added.

According to him, this five-seater plane will also this year be sold to Belarus /4 machines/ and to Laos /3 machines/.

Among the complex's achievements Shakhnovich mentioned development and sales abroad of a new inter-regional 62-seater passenger airliner Il-114. "Several of such liners have been sold to Uzbekistan," he said. "Also, two Il-114s have been purchased by St. Petersburg air lines: these new turbo-prop planes will fly to Samara, Nizhny Novgorod (both cities on the Volga), and Murmansk, northern Russia, from St. Petersburg's Pulkovo airport.

The new aircraft /Il-103 and Il-114) meet all modern international noise and other technical requirements, the specialist said.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
