The story is not quiet clear on the significance of this event. This from KIEV, UKRAINE...

The company dates back to Soviet days when “the Ukraine” was an SSR. Totally under control of Moscow.

So Antonovs were assembled in Kiev with all parts being Russian. Around 1997, I sat in the cockpit of an Antonov At

NOW, Ukraine is an independent nation, with an uneasy alliance with its giant neighbor.

And most of the parts were made, not in EU or China,, but here in the USA.

that’s the amazing part of this...

They got a good price on early Airbus 319 winglets...

Probably the avionics and engines are the highest value items, which are used throughout Airbus and Boeing fleets, so no.

The engines are from Progress, a Ukrainian company, according to Wiki.

Could have built it from scrap BAe146 air-frames.
