Russia unveils new passenger plane

Russia has unveiled a new medium-range passenger plane that it hopes will rival Airbus and Boeing models.

The Russian Premier Dmitry Medvedev rolled out its new MC-21 passenger plane, which is still undergoing testing but is due to enter serial production next year.

The plane is sometimes also known as MS-21.

Medvedev hailed the new twin-engine short and medium-range aircraft as ‘cool,’ saying it was important that Russia remained in what he called the top league of aircraft makers despite the high costs involved.
