    Exactly how many airports does Moscow have? The first few pictures look similar to Domodedovo airport. There are Sheremetievo 1 and 2, is this completely new?

      Vnukovo airport has been in operation since 1941.. It only became international in the past decade or so I believe..

    It will fall down within 6 months due to third world construction. All third world construction fails after a few months due to the lack of skill by the engineers and workers. Not educated enough to find their way out of a broken paper bag let alone trusted enough to build anything of this scale, by the way, the third world should not be flying airplanes anyway, too complicated for them to understand.

    pay back the IMF loans before building anything.
