Agong survived the Sukhoi. He flew on the most advanced superjet in Malaysia. It must be really exciting to get on one of those superjet. Based on his smile and expressions I believed he really enjoyed being flown on the Sukohoi. It was indeed a grace to be flown with the Agong inside. Asghar, the pilot, must be excited and thrilled at the same time flying with the most important man in Malaysia and throttling the most expensive jets in Malaysia!!
Have a nice flight Sukhoi!!!
