        Maybe they will still restore it. And -1 will not give anything with a quantity of more than 220 pieces.
        Otherwise, they will order a new one, which also will not affect the US transport aviation in any way. Those. "minus one" is not a topic at all.
        This is the same as taking a drop from the Pacific Ocean and saying - minus a drop.

          Maybe they will restore it, but maybe not. It will also take time and resources to recover. At least this one doesn't fly yet.

            And to make a new one, you need to order it, the customer will start assembling it, the workers will receive money.

                It looks like overheating of the brakes, to be honest, I wonder what the reason is. Would have been slowed down when landing - it would have blown up the rubber. Really wondering what happened

                  I don’t know what kind of braking system is there, in aviation it seems like a pneumatic one, maybe something hydraulic got on the hot brake discs ... It’s clear that he hadn’t taken off his shoes otherwise he wouldn’t have taxied.

                        Yes, I have no complaints against you. On the L-39, MiG-21, the brakes are powered by the air system. I don’t know for Sukikh, I didn’t exploit it. The rest are hydraulically powered.

          Not. This is the same as taking a drop out of 220 drops - minus a drop.
          More clearly - there are 219 volts in the network instead of 220.

              Triviality does not cancel a handcribe. They do not repair such damage, lost technology. An example is the whole of Ukraine and the Baltic states are packed with practical new American cars with minor damage in road accidents, which are discarded by their insurance companies and sold at auctions due to the impossibility of bringing them to factory condition. Aviation is even stricter and sadder.

    They need to recruit pyromaniacs in firefighters so that when the plane was on fire, they ran around it in circles, threw wood into the fire, and shouted "burn, burn clearly, so that it doesn't go out!" laughing And so uninteresting, he did not even have time to start burning properly - only the wiring was melted. ..

    Most likely, during landing, one of the wheels caught fire. And since the landing gear is practically in the body of the aircraft, the fire spread. Nothing strange.

      Yes, the plane managed to taxi into the parking lot, and only then did the firefighters wake up. I remember when the naksh Tu-95 in Havana sat down with a roll and hooked with screws and the end of the runway plane, the Cuban firefighters, when he was still rolling along the strip, caught up and stuck with foam.
