That’s not Apocalyptic era, it’s just a testing base of the Emergency Control Ministry of Belarus. They tried to stimulate virtually any catastrophe you can imagine, and they really know what they do. It looks like a cemetery of human civilizations — planes, helicopters, trains, oil reservoirs. Houses, plants and many other objects. Kind of toys for grown-up boys.
Here is an overturned minibus, and you can get inside it and imagine you are the last man on the Earth.
Ford (??), which roof was cut a lot of times. The cuts are connected with angle pieces.
A compartment car. After it’s burned, they construct a new wooden compartment inside the car.
All kinds of war machinery, including armored personnel carriers.
Planes. The Tu-134.
It’s quite unusual to see a jetliner on the grass.
Fly Belavia. Bad food, bad flight.
Helicopters. What model?
Every helicopter must have a bucket.
Dummy-plane for simulating explosions and fires. You can’t burn it, it’s of aluminum.
Practicing water rescue. A little turbine on the bank imitates wind from a propeller.
There, underwater, they have a flooded village (sure, not a real one) for diving practice.
Half an apartment block for simulating fires, and in front of it there are effects of earthquakes, a bearing-wall house collapsed like a house of cards.
It looks uninhabited, but it has some dwellers.
Here they are:
He’s a bit burned and totally drunk.
With spring-supported hands and legs.
A wooden dummy #1. It’s used for getting out and rescuing from objects on fire. It’s quite horrifying to stumble upon them, scattered here and there in weird poses over the testing area
Here is another one. Kind #2.
He’s bored and tired, and is saying “Bye-bye!”
