You have already seen the process of preparation for the great air show MAKS-2011 in the previous post. And now the exhibition is finally open and we have a chance to see many photos of majestic aircraft from all over the world.
This year’s Moscow air show is anniversary, it is held for the tenth time. About 800 companies from 40 countries take part in it. It is anticipated that the exhibition will be visited by more than half a million visitors and spectators. And organizers hope that the total sum of contracts will exceed $ 10 billion.
Having been carefully examined by policemen three (!) times, you finally find yourself among turbines, propellers and landing gear.
The first beauty on which you fix your eyes is the Airbus A380.
The two-storey liner arrived here from France.
Nearby, you can see a tiny aircraft named the Cri Cri. This is the smallest airplane in the world. It runs on electricity and can be in the air for up to 30 minutes. Though its pilot has to stick to a diet.
