    Russia's Sukhoi T-50 5th generation fighter made an emergency landing at the MAKS-2011 International Aviation and Space Show on Sunday.
    "The T-50 fighter stopped the flight for technical reasons. For the moment we know that the pilot is alive," an official spokesman for MAKS-2011 told RIA Novosti.

    A flash was seen during the fighter's takeoff, after that the aircraft landed with a parachute, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.
    A senior aviation expert told RIA Novosti that an emergency landing was normal for the period of test flights, especially in the conditions of high humidity and "taking into account the safety of the air show visitors."

    The T-50, developed under the program PAK FA (Future Aviation System for Tactical Air Force) at the Sukhoi OKB, is expected to be put into service as soon as 2015.

    I am not worried as this is a common event for any new technology when developed,

    even F-22s have made dozens of emergeny landings,
    during and even after test phase,
    but i do not doubt the F-22s abilities,
    new things take time to evolve.

    Trials and Errors help us learn and improve ourselfs even further.

    Russian Airshow Displays State Inefficiency

    Moments after Mr. Putin had praised the great advances in Russia’s aviation industry, a MIG-29 fighter jet was forced to abort its display flight due to a technical malfunction. Less than 24 hours later, the country’s space agency, Roskosmos, said it had lost contact with a major new telecommunications satellite, the Express-AM4, just hours after launch.

    For the public, the airshow has become a reminder of Russia’s underdeveloped infrastructure and general lack of organization. The just 35-kilometer distance from the Moscow city centre takes around two and a half hours by public transport.

    Getting there by car is no better. The Moscow traffic police shine in their bright white uniforms, but forget to actually do their job and guide the traffic, which leads to massive jams. This year, however, the organizers had anticipated the lack of parking spaces, but instead of actually adding more, they decided to solve the problem by charging 2700 rubles–the equivalent of $93–for a space.

    Finding the way around the twelve huge pavilions with hundreds of company exhibitions proves an equal challenge. Organizers provided no information about where each company is located, and when asking at the information stand, an uninformed girl suggested buying the airshow program for 700 rubles ($24).

    And then of course there is the ever-relevant issue in Russia: they forgot the toilets! None of the area maps at the airshow shows any, and after a 20-minute search, a single portable toilet finally appeared–without toilet paper, of course.

    Maybe some of the billions of dollars they put into state corporations to develop high-technology aircraft could also be used to provide the public with ordinary every-day services like public transport, decent roads, parking spaces and toilets.

    oh i am not worried, at 300$ Million a piece, F-22s production deserved to be stopped
    I am more happy that FGFA / PAK FA will be close to 100$ Million per piece :happy:

    Engine Woes Force Russian T-50 to Abort Takeoff

    AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
    Published: 21 Aug 2011 10:49
    MOSCOW - An engine problem forced Russia to abort the takeoff of its new T-50 stealth plane at an air show outside Moscow on Aug. 21, officials said.


    The Russian T-50 stealth fighter performs on Aug. 17 during MAKS-2011 in Zhukovsky, Russia. (Dmitry Kostyukov / Agence France-Presse) The pilot "stopped the take-off due to technical defects," a spokeswoman for the MAKS international airshow said, adding that the Sukhoi fighter never even left the ground.


    The plane was still undergoing tests so technical glitches were to be expected and the pilot "simply chose not to take risks," the spokeswoman said.

    A spokeswoman for state-run United Aircraft Corporation, parent company of plane-maker Sukhoi, attributed the problem to a fault with the right engine.

    Experts will be closely looking into what caused the glitch, the spokeswoman said, noting there was no plan to take the plane into the air again later Aug. 22.

    Prime Minister Vladimir Putin attended the air show Aug. 17 when the T-50, which is being developed jointly by Russia and India, made its first public flight.

    It is one of the two of the sleek fighter jets being showcased and test-flown at the annual show, which began Aug. 16.

    The airshow spokeswoman said the planes had flown without a hitch over the previous four days.

    Russian officials have said the final version of the T-50 will not be ready until the end of 2016, although the country's air force expects to receive the first jets within three years.

    Did you see that, from where the chute poped out, its seems a good design improvement from the su-47 dual tail TD for integrating both the chute pod and the rear ward facing radar.

    this is what happens when you push tech demonstrators/prototypes too hard for performances in airshows.....although it might be even due the engine damage by fod.....

    Su-47 was a Technology Test Bed where their were two awkwardly unequal tails one for the brake chute dispenser other for a rearward facing radar
    the concept has been applied in T-50 integrating both of them in a single installation.
