Russian blogger/photographer Sergey Dolya was in Indonesia with the Sukhoi Superjet Road Show when Wednesday’s second demo flight disappeared. Dolya was not on the downed flight, but did onboard an earlier flight from which he shared these photos. It was Dolya who broke the story that the plane was missing via Twitter.

The photos of the previous flight show a jovial and fun atmosphere, as is the case on just about any demo flight, and passengers and crew on the missing flight would have been no different.
