Russia tests new jet

Russia's new fifth-generation stealth fighter made a successful maiden test flight on Friday, the manufacturer said. The Sukhoi T-50 prototype took to the skies for a 45-minute flight at an airfield in the Far Eastern city of Komsomoslk-on-Amur on Friday, Sukhoi spokesman Alexei Paveshchenko told reporter. Russian officials have spent two decades trying to build a fifth-generation fighter. They hope the T-50 will challenge the U.S. F-22 Raptor, which first flew in 1997.
