    Acks, it doesn't work anymore. Somebody must have contributed the correct translation, heh.

    It's a joke

    there was too much media attention and whining when Russia decided to roll out tanks and other military toys at the annual May Day parade for the first time in many many years in 2008, if you don't recall.

    I'm guessing that Mars_Mx asked whether it was postponed for a day AGAIN, which I haven't seen reported anywhere else yet. Or maybe it's just "tomorrow" in MATI's timezone, and he didn't mean to report a new delay.

    This is really getting annoying for the general public and it must be rather embarrasing for the Russians/Sukhoi if this is all at at even true.

    Sorry if my information is not all up to date but most information is in Russian which I don't speak. As I understand it, the first flight was meant to be yesterday, but it got postponed (depending on which report you read) either due to bad weather or a basic software problem...or now because the engines aren't fully tested. Its one or the other.

    Even if the first flight has been postponed, why no roll out??? Surely you would expect a rollout and presentation speech, I mean bloody hell the MiG 1:44 had a roll out before its first flight!!! Photos were made available and we all were happy to say it exists.

    I'm a big fan of Russian tech but with every delay comes more doubts and frustration. I don't care if its a photo of the damn thing sitting in a hangar but give us something!!!

    I'm hoping this is true...not just a bit of BS to keep the media happy. If it is then a big well done and congratulations to both Sukhoi and the pilot. I hungrily look forward to photos and youtube footage
