Factory History

This reconstructed page originally appeared at URL http://members.xoom.com/komsomolsk/KnAAPO.htm, but now appears to have been taken down. It was reconstructed by the APORT search engine.  It is translated here so that the information is not lost.  There were no sources provided for the information in the reconstruction and Roy's Resources is not responsible for its accuracy.  All designators were typed in English, and some grammatical constructions and word usage indicate that the page was translated to Russian from another language, possibly even English.  Reference to "flight" in the chronology below probably means "first flight."
