Insist on Cash When Russia is the Customer
If you think times are hard in the U.S. or Europe, consider this.
The Russians pulled their Su-30 MK fighter-bomber, upgraded MiG-29 fighter
and MiG-AT advanced trainers from appearing and performing at the Farnborough
air show this year (2002) for fear that a court would impound them.
Farnborough, England, hosts the world's largest commercial and military
air show each year. A Swiss import/export company is owed money by the
Russians and has an ongoing lawsuit. What a scene that would be - an
aircraft tow truck rolling across the tarmac with a MiG on the hook!
