Alone, old and now not dangerous fighters located near Moscow. They are a little bit disassembled, but still beautiful.

The majority of fighters lack nose cones. People love to take them as souvenirs.

And engines also.

    Excellent

  2. whodareswins says:

    Surprisingly similar in construction & design to the Tornados I have worked on

  3. I think they are MiG-25.

    F. Bunker here.

    Seksi, but i think the whole missing noses thing is because there is much high tech sensoric technology in it!

    It is ironic that Nikolai Bokiy is remembered on Mig31 designed to intercept American bombers. Nikolai achieved Hero of Soviet Union by shooting down Germans in an American-built Aircobra aircraft.

    And also, please recycle.

    If i were rich i would buy myself mig-31, go to pilot school and crash it after graduation. If i survive i would buy another one. Until i crash & burn.

    They aren’t abandoned. This is a military base were aircraft are decommissioned when they have come to the end of there life span. Most of these are the early MiG-31’s and cant be upgraded to the BM standard. Some of the parts are used as spares. Russian has a lot of spares like engines for their MiG-31’s. I guess they may use up the old engines before going to the new ones which will save money i suppose. Still sad to see though.

    Too bad the cold war burnes so much on both sides in terms of resources, but the technological advances spurred are invaluable.
    People take ENGINES as souveniers?
    Some of the compilations on ER tug your heartstrings, imagining the history..

      Oh, yes, very nicely put. Nice comment. Couldn’t agree more!

      Some of these ER postings are mind-blowing.
