I have doubts this will be possible  by  2018, but it may be possible in the near future.

Imagine 50 of those flying around the city. They'll likely be more accidents than Aeroflot.... :plane:

Times, they be a changing.

"Aeroflot's safety standards are now among the best in the industry. The website AirlineRatings.com – which judges the vulnerability of carriers according to a number of criteria – gives it the maximum seven stars, placing it alongside the likes of Qantas, and it has been involved in just one fatal accident in the past 20 years."

And I thought drug use was only in the United States. But it is the dog days.

Indeed, Soviet performance couldn't have worsened. They have come on leaps and bounds...the only way is up I guess. However,

3 Write offs in the 00's - 2 due to pilot error (1 landing without landing gear FFS)

And overshooting the runway back in January.

After you Jerash :plane:

Is this including the one where the pilot's son crashed the Airbus?
