    Su-30 construction numbers

    Hello,

    Did somebody read the Su-30 construction numbers at Waddington ?

    The c/n plate is to be found on the front bulkhead of the nosewheel bay.

    Any additional details would be more than wellcome!

    What kind of reward are you offering for those Su-30 construction numbers? Something like an annual subscription for the Scramble magazine?

      No, but for every Su-30MKI c/n I can send you a bottle of HEINEKEN beer
      And all credits for reading those construction numbers

        It depends what Mig and Sukhoi construction numbers you are talking about.

              you are a bit overestimating me buddy.... I`ve been interested in planes flown in former Czechoslovakia only. What line produced Su-35 are you talking about anyway?

                  Does that offer apply to Non-Waddo Su-30 MKI as well ?

                    I wonder if anything interesting will turn up at MAKS 2007 as that is always somewhere that new c/ns can be found.

                    *thinks back to 2001 and the "self guided tour" at 0645 to get c/ns...*
                    I don't want to die, because I don't want to end up like Anita Dobson - Frank Sidebottom, actually.
                    Thank you

                      Did you get to have the preach by FSB Colonel Pavlov as well? I got busted underneath the Bear on the Tupolev platform... Don't think there's more fun to be had than at MAKS, i had a full-size grin on my face for two straight days.

                              This was painted on the port fuselage side just above the main wheel bay (but not on the starboard side) in the same place as the Russian Su-30s that came to Fairford some years back.

                                  I checked our photo collection from aero india where we did some up and personal shots with the MKIs. I found the following photo by our contributor Vijay Simha Reddy - Is ths the C/N Plate that you talk about? If so the number somehow 'matches' the serial number of the ac SB106.. These were the HAL produced examples

                                        We turned up extremely early and got on the workers bus without having to show anything to get in. I started walking and kept going and going and managed to avoid the FSB goons more by luck than design. I saw them nabbing someone else further away and decided I had chanced my luck enough.

                                        I think that was the week when earlier on I was standing under the Su-35(?) discussing what it was exactly comparing c/ns with the Su-33 next to it with the American Embassy air attache who went by the name of 'Dan Eagle'. I still have his business card around somewhere.
