A mock-up model of Russia's new hydrogen-powered high-speed passenger plane will be on display at the MAKS-2017 airshow, due to kick off in Zhukovsky outside Moscow on July 18.

The Russian Zhukovsky Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) will present a prototype model of Russia's advanced hydrogen-powered passenger plane at the upcoming MAKS-2017 International Aviation and Space Salon, according to information published on TsAGI's website.

TsAGI specialists created a mock-up of the new plane within the framework of the Hexafly-Int project, which is aimed to help MAKS-2017 visitors get a better understanding of promising developments related to the future of passenger aviation. 

The hydrogen-powered plane will have a non-standard configuration and is expected to be able to make inter-continental flights several times faster than modern-day passenger planes, the Russian news network Zvezda reported.

Thanks to the fact that the new aircraft will be equipped with hydrogen-powered engines, it will be able to reach a top speed of approximately Mach 6.5 (about 8,000 kilometers per hour), according to Zvezda.

The sleepy Moscow suburb of Zhukovsky is making final preparations to host the MAKS-2017 airshow, which due to be held from July 18 to July 23.
