The very distant part of the exhibition visited by very few visitors. The so-called cemetery of aircraft.

The Buran.

This is how the pride of Russian aircraft industry looks from the side which is seen to visitors…

    compared to MAKS-2011 airshow, the french one called “paris – le bourget airshow 2011” that was held last june was just some lame weak garbage! it didn’t even have one third of exhibits/aircrafts that are featured in this airshow in russia.

    She is happy thinking that she put her hands on “vibrating bullets” :))

    The Buran is an indication of Russian aviation in general. It is able to put up some show piece units. However, it is a shell of what it once was. That picture is the most striking example I have seen to date. It suns it up perfectly.

    Thanks for the great photos!

    @testicules: The Buran is a symbol of expensive waste of resources. As well as the grounded American Shuttles. That’s why the Americans now pay for a lift to space in reliable Soyuz.

      Your logic is as flawed as your genetic make up

      • No Mame says:

        HA HA HA!! Genetic make up?? Baby got upset again? Your astronauts will have to enjoy SOYUZ rides for a long, long time. Please, you have to inform NASA! Ask about their “genetic makeup”, or for some candies, Lol!…

    Your program is so great. Yet today another soyuz crashed into the sea. Quality

    • No Mame says:

      Was a high school teacher in there? No? For the moment Soyuz doesn’t have the same tragic quality of your explosive shuttles.

    • Ball Breaker says:

      We inform that the accidented Soyuz was an unmanned supply craft. NASA informs that no Americans exploded today over the Atlantic.
