No, it's not a Zlin, it's a Russian one . . .
Designation starts with "S-".
Maybe that one helps . . .

"S-"? Cant recall such company.

But it has to be fairly new anyway, considered the inside luxury.

The company is pretty well known, I'd say. Actually, I have no idea why they used S- as desigantion.
Fabo is right, this plane is a pretty recent development, it started in the 1990s.

Dude you picked a dusie there! I've looked thrue several archives of russian aircraft manufacturer and factories and can't find it. There's no company I can find that use S- as their designation. Almost every model from every company use part of the company name as the designation. I can only find about 7 or so russian aircraft companies that have familiar sounding names, and no one has a S- designation. Beriev have made some amphibian aircraft and Sukhoi military trainers also used as aerobatics aircraft but I'm stumped.

It may stand for СКУЧНЫЙ - translated as Experimental at the best, but not really experimental.. "to be tried on" or so.

Either an SU-29 or an SU-31. I'm gonna say the SU-31 though.

Didn't one of those boeing 797s just land at Chicago???  ::rofl:: I heard that the 1000 passengers were very happy with the flight. The engineers say that the lift to drag ratio increased over 50% when they use the blended wing design.  ;D  ;D  ::rofl:: ::rofl:: ::rofl:: ::rofl::
