Russian plane maker's regional jet delayed

Russia's Sukhoi Co. won't make its 2010 deadline to deliver the first of its Superjet 100 regional jets, an aviation publication reported Thursday.

Aviation Week said the Russian aerospace company will achieve partial Russian certification of the twin-engine plane by the end of this year, but other issues remain to be ironed out with regulators.

Those developments will push the delivery of the first Superjet 100 to at least February.
