    FARNBOROUGH (U.K.), July 15 (RIA Novosti) - Russian aircraft maker MiG said on Tuesday it had completed a flight test program on four MiG-29 ground-attack aircraft for Serbia's Air Force.

    "We are announcing the news for the first time today," MiG CEO Vladimir Barkovsky said at the Farnborough world air show.

    More than 60 Russian defense-industry companies are taking part in the Farnborough air show that opened on Monday at a site southwest of the British capital.

    The 2008 Farnborough International Airshow is the biggest ever in the event's 60-year history in terms of exhibition space and exhibitor numbers, the organizers said on their website.

    The total number of exhibitors is over 1,500, a 5% increase on last year. 39 countries will be represented, with 29 international and regional pavilions, while there are likely to be 140,000 business visitors attending the show from July 14-18.

    Russia has been showcasing its civilian products at the show since 1984, and its military aircraft since 1988.
