It's name Si Kumbang, meaning (intimate definitive article) BumbleBee. Si= definite article used before a noun referring to a particular person in a category esp in Javanese language of Indonesia. Kumbang can also mean black and or beetle.
Pls excuse the silly kids posting in Indonesian here- anak2 kurang ajar (crude unruly kids).

Seharusnya masih ada dua pesawat buatan Indonesia masuk ke dalam daftar, yaitu N-250 dan N-2130. Tetapi kenapa proyek pembuatan pesawat tersebut terseok-seok ? Saya yakin para pakar2 aeronautic engineer Indonesia mampu....... Apakah karena suatu alasan politis sehingga proyek tersebut ditinggalkan ? Adakah kepedulian pemerintah untuk melanjutkan proyek tersebut, dengan berbagai cara melobi pihak2 authority internasional sehingga ijin or sertifikasi thd pesawat tersebut dapat terrealisasi ? Ironis sekali, padahal orang2 pintar indonesia katanya banyak tersebar di manca negara mendapat pengakuan Internasional, tetapi untuk negara sendiri tidak peduli........oh malangnya nasib Indonesia. Ayo bung !! Bangunlah negara sendiri dulu baru berbicara di dunia internasional......Okay..

I worked at IPTN in Bandung in 1993-94 as a powerplant engineer on the N250. The original NU-200 aircraft is at the entrance to IPTN and looks exactly like the above photo. I took two photos of the aircraft at that time.

I have visited IPTN / PTDI in Bandung @ 2003, I am so impressed to see the capabilities and advanced technology used to design and manufacture CN235 and other aircrafts, Pak Nurtiano has leave a legacy to the whole Malay archipelago. We must now work together to build reliable aircraft for ASEAN countries...as what Europe has come up with Airbus.

i believe that PTDI (in bandung i guess) have developed (at least designed) jet plane other than CN235 or N212, may be this company need more fund from government (ask IMF why Indonesian government not support this company).
