This is the guy who embarassed the Russians and astounded the world, when in 1987 at the age of 19 flew a Cessna 172B undetected all the way from Malmi airport in Helsinki, landing the craft in Moscow's Red Square. Mathias Rust (born 1968) is a German pilot who, in 1987, at the age of 19, flew from Hamburg to Moscow, eluding the Soviet air defences and landed in Red Square near the Kremlin. After leaving Hamburg on May 28 Rust refuelled his Cessna 172B at Helsinki-Malmi Airport. He told air traffic control that he was going to Stockholm, but he turned his plane towards the east. Rust disappeared from the Finnish air space near Sipoo. He headed towards the Baltic coastline and turned
towards Moscow. By chance, he flew into the Soviet Union on the national border guard's holiday, and the lax security that resulted allowed him to fly into Soviet territory unnoticed. I think it was even by chance but the date was chosen by him on purpose because it's well known that during this holiday every national guardian is drunk no matter he is engaged on his post or resting in the barracks. Rust flew straight towards Moscow and landed in Red Square. He was arrested immediately by the Soviet authorities. Though on this photo he doesn't look like immediately arrested, authorities seem like enternained by his deed.
All these buildings might remind some objects from Sci-Fi movies of the past. In the former USSR you can meet such buildings. They are not very often but there are some like in this photo series. Some of the buildings have weird history. For example the building number 3, the “Friendship” hotel attracted a great part of attention from USA intelligence agency. They thought it was some sort of missile
launching site. This one can remind some castle from "Star Wars" but in fact it's a place in which Soviet marriage events were held in Tbilisi, Gergia. In Russia and in USSR marriage doesn't occur in the church, it happens in a special house called "Palace of The Marage". It is so still nowadays, though after getting married in such place couple can visit a church.
We try to find an alternative that can people help to move across the roads like this. There were already mentioned "A Luxury Tank", "Russian Hummer Clone" and some low budget versions of Russian way to move across. Now it's turn for Ukrainian
thing to be shown. Ukraine was a part of USSR for 70 years, and still many people consider it to be Russian by its nature. So they also want to help Russia to solve its old road problem, so they presented a "VEPR" vehicle.
