UAC-Comac wide-body aircraft: The wide-body aircraft being jointly developed by Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation and China’s Comac is going to cost around $13bn, UAC chairman Yury Slyusar said this week . The preliminary design of the aircraft should be ready by July, he said; but the costs have had to be recalculated due to the collapse in the value of the rouble. UAC expects to sell between 600 and 800 of the new planes by 2032, or 10% of the global market. St Petersburg Times
