During the visit to Yuri Gagarin Aviation Plant, Kim, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and president of the State Affairs of the DPRK, got on a Su-57 fighter jet to hear a detailed explanation of its technical specifications and flight performance and watched flight demonstration of a Su-35 fighter jet.
