Russia finally orders Antonov AN-70

Well it was a painful birthing process, but the Russia's VTA (Military Transport Service) has finally ordered 60 of the outstanding AN-70 Air Freighters.

Coverage is here.

 It is great to see politics laid aside and a worthy global competitor un-leashed on the STOL market. Particularly for heavy lift capabilities. Congratulations to Antonov and here is wishing the VTA a great success with their new aircraft.
