Ukraine Sells Planes

ZAPORIZHA, Ukraine () -- Ukraine will provide Iran with technology to build passenger aircraft after winning an international tender, the director of Ukraine's largest aircraft engine plant said Thursday.

Vyacheslav Boguslayev, head of the Motor-Sich plant in Zaporizha, in eastern Ukraine, told visiting President Leonid Kuchma that a contract had been signed to build the new Antonov-140 short-haul turboprop plane.

Boguslayev said Antonov won the contract in competition with 11 other firms, including Russia's Ilyushin.
