    Don't bigger planes than the Y-12 land?
    When is the scheduled Helitours MA-60 plane landing?

    Why can't SLAF planes fix ADS-B transponders? Isn't it easy for them and aviation enthusiasts to track?
    (can it be for security reasons?)

    Bigger planes do come by, such as the Antonov AN-32B, C-130K and mostly the MA-60 aircraft. Nowadays even commercial/private jets come by too on short stopovers.
    The Helitours MA-60 aircraft normally touches down at 1600hrs (4.30pm) or sometimes a bit late too.

    Heard that even the other C-130K, SCH-881 (former SCH-3402) is also nearing the overhaul completion. So I think we will have 2 C-130K Hercules back in the fleet again like the good old times.

    Do you know the flight path?
    Does it come from Jaffna or Trincomalee ? But, I have never seen a landing at that time

    Yakalov 130 - which he is pictured in as well. A much better choice compared to JF-17 if they are looking seriously.

    According to the pictures looks like SLAF team inspected below Russian products and
    visited the stall Of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).

    The Yak-130 two-seat operational trainer provides for the basic and advanced training of pilots for existing and future warplanes, including generation “4++” and “5” ultra-maneuverable fighters.

    The MiG-35 multi-role fighter representing further refinement of the MiG-29K/KUB and MiG-29M/M2 warplanes aimed at higher combat effectiveness and versatility, as well as better operating performance.

    The Su-30SM multirole fighter is the further development of the Su-30MK combat aircraft family. The Su-30SM two-seat fighter is supermaneuverable, equipped with active phased array radar, thrust vectoring engines and canard surfaces. The fighter can use modern and advanced precise air-to-air and air-to-surface armament.

    Russia likely to offer a credit line facility to purchase the jets…
