Things to look for:

-Will they finally let the MiG MFI sit in the static display? Or the Su-47?

-Will they display an R-33S?

Do you know if PAK FA's will land/takeoff from Zhukovsky when they will have display, or will it be from a different airfield?

I was fortunate to see the An-225 with the Buran shuttle on top at the 1989 Le Bourget air show. Seeing this behemoth mistel both on the ground and flying over the airport was a unique experience that was never matched. What a sad ending for both the Burans, really... Fortunately the An-225 is still doing mighty fine. Wish they had built more!

Yes, that was the plan, and they planned to display it then. So it is just a nice bonus they have already done some work on one side, and decided to display it. :)

collective mind came into conclusion that doors should open down to not interfere with LES
moreover, T50-0 photo seemingly has part of fast bay door internals catched on camera
I did insist that they are opened up, seems that I was mistaken
