As it happens, that specific aircraft was exported to China, where it subsequently took part in a two company pass-through sale and was flown to North Korea. Oddly enough though, the registration is still Chinese, but it is permanently based in North Korea.

Indeed.

 

This one seemed to get "under the Sanctions Radar" too...

I'll have to admit though: Those Russian Airliners look stunning. Beautiful design isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Russia, but they sure knew how to make sleek lines in some of their aircraft. Too bad I've never gotten to see some of those classic Russian airliners in real life.

John Key signed off on a $75 million joint venture between Pacific Aerospace and Beijing Automotive when he visited in March 2014, which allowed the Kiwi-made plane to be sold into China and to private clients. It has nothing to do with NZ what China does with the aircraft after they buy it, and as long as China ignores UN sanctions on NK it will continue to happen with any product or service that is sold from any country to China, So will the USA Sanction us Kiwi`s now....!

More concerned about the airliner at 6:12 with the tail wheel config. Thats some serious C of G issue or everybody rushes to the toilet on landing?

+1 and the engines sounds are awesome either, great stuff!

Good Video, Was that a landing or a crash at 09:38 with the Mig 21?

 

Is that what you'd call a firm landing, maybe he's practising for landing on carriers :)
