T-50-9 was doing taxiing runs yesterday. In theory that frame was to be "complete" in terms of electronics but very unlikely that is still true. Either way, crossing fingers for -10 and -11 this year too, thus completing the prototypes.

It will be interesting to see if T-50-9 was indeed carrying a full set of electronics.  If not then we will just have to wait until -10 or -11 to fly.  By the way any word on the progress of FGFA the Indian Air Force T-50 variant?

T-50-9 has flown. 3 new frames in just under a year.

Good news for Sukhoi.  Now we wait for -10 and -11 to fly, then on to series production.  B)

Wasn't there supposed to be a change or modification of the SRAAM bays starting with the "second stage" PAK FA (so T-50-8 onwards)? I don't really see any difference in the pictures, at least in shape. Is it supposed to be an external shape change, internal change, or both?
