10 MiG-31 Boneyard

MiG-31 Boneyard

Posted on April 20, 2011 by team


Every plane, as well as every engine, has its own lifetime. Engine’s lifetime is measured in working hours, and airframe’s lifetime – in the number of takeoffs and landings. After the end of lifetime, an engine can be demounted and replaced by a new one, but an airframe is often disposed. Here is one of the military boneyards, where disposed MiGs are stored.

    Intersting seeing how much small parts a plane actually are made of, most of all that small pieces are in fact handmade or assembled by hand.

    Hi my friends
    We share the passion for aircrafts, specially soviet made aircrafts.
    I have plans to visit Moscow soon. Could you tell me where is this boneyard located? It is open to the public or do I need some special permit?
    thanks in advance,
    Gaby
