The Red Wings saga continues

When it looked like grounded airline Red Wings, following its sale for one rouble to a group of Russian businessmen was going to recover its air worthiness certificate, Russian aviation authorities have denied this move.

Red Wings aircraft will continue on the ground for now...(their website is still active, although it just carries some messages informing about the evovling situation)

By the way, Russia's first TV channel broadcasted some news footage about the arrival of Japanese prime minister to the Russian capital where it is possible to spot two Red Wings' grounded Tupolev Tu-204 at a Moscow airport (most possibly Vnukovo).

Experienced planespotters might also be able to tell on what model of Boeing 747 did the Japanese delegation fly in to the meeting!
