- Story Text:President Vladimir Putin showed off Russia's new Su-57 stealth fighter jet to Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday (August 27).
The Turkish president joined his Russian counterpart for a walkthrough at the MAKS-2019 air show, which opened on the same day in the Moscow region.
The two leaders mingled and could be seen laughing as they examined aircraft, including Russia's MC-21 passenger plane, Mi-38 helicopter and the Be-200 multipurpose amphibious aircraft.
Russia on Tuesday delivered another battery of Russian S-400 missile defences to Turkey, Interfax news agency cited Putin as saying to Erdogan.
Turkey's Defence Ministry said that the delivery of a second battery of S-400 defence system had started as of Tuesday and that it would take around one month.
Turkey received the first shipment earlier this year, a move that prompted Washington last month to begin formally removing Ankara from an F-35 programme in which Turkey was both customer and producer.
Over 800 businesses from foreign countries are taking part in the MAKS-2019 event, which Russia hopes will shore up sales of Russian made aircraft. According to RIA news agency, this year's expo is the first one, organised with participation of China.
