This is it leaving yesterday. Note the smoke. The Russians don't seem to be able to make clean jets.

In the last decade, most of the big U.S. airlines have shifted major maintenance work to places like El Salvador, Mexico, and China, where few mechanics are F.A.A. certified and inspections have no teeth.
