Russia 2013 (pic heavy)

Post by shaggy22 »

For those who don't know I was lucky enough to visit Russia at the end of August this year. There was some incredible flying, SU35 & Russian attack helicopter demo in particular. MAKS also boasted the European demo of the PLAAF August 1st display team flying Shenyang J10's. We spent 2 days at Zhukovsky air base for MAKS, the weather on the first day was great, apart from the sun which is straight in front of the crowd line. The second days weather was poor to say the least, low cloud at the start of the day & when the cloud base lifted it started to rain. And to add insult to injury my camera died near the end of the show. Someone lent me a camera body so it wasn't the end of the world. A trip to the museum at Monino was also an experience as it has some rare aircraft types & as an added bonus is in close proximity to Kubinka. We also spent some time in Moscow itself which is a beautiful city, especially at night time. Anyway, enough yakking (see what I did there :D ) here are some pics of the static line up:

So that should help with the MAIW package right??? Just kidding, so many types and most would scare me to fly in, especially the rotary types. Still a fan of the Flanker series, very sexy jet.

I love everything about Russia, the fighters are sexy, great architecture and the women are absolutely beautiful ..... I can only speak for the far east, Vladivostok/Siberian women that I personally have met but I am sure they are just as hot in Moscow, as a matter of fact I am planning on leaving the US for England next year for good and I will definitely make it over to Russia again for my first holiday. Its unbelievably cool there.

I really am impressed to see the US doing combined exercises like Vigilant Guardian with the Su-27's now. Gone are the days when the two were in the same airspace someone dies and Russia loses another great jet ........ that says something about Russian/US diplomacy for sure.

Great Pics!

Thanks for the nice comments guys, most appreciated

As for Muscovite women, I can confirm they are stunning :mrgreen:

The next set are from the museum at Monino just outside Moscow. We also had some nice flyovers from the base at Kubinka just up the road.

There is quite a lot of photos in this little lot but I think they are worth a look

Final set from me. As I said before, the weather for photography was awful, low cloud & even lower light, especially when the Chinese were displaying. Still lots of brilliant flying though

Not every day we are allowed to get a glimpse of the present and certainly not much of the past Russian aircraft. The light may not have been what you wanted with your last set of photo's but you certainly captured the flavour.
Really enjoyed the pictures.
Thanks a million Dan

Great photo's Dan

They sure do know how to make pretty Aircraft, But there are a few very strange contraptions

Amen to that. They're certainly not afraid of trying anything, even if it does look completely ridiculous

I got bored a couple of months ago & I decided to put all my pics from Russia into a video. I've had this sitting on my PC for a while now but never got round to uploading it anywhere. This mostly contains the pictures above plus a few more I edited for this. Enjoy, if you can last the full 20 minutes that is :D
