Grandiose Air Show MAKS-2011. Part 3

Posted on August 23, 2011 by team

The An-124 Ruslan leaves Max.

The aerobatic team “Rus”.

The forth day turned out to be rainy but nevertheless there were a lot of people and the flight program wasn’t shortened.

Policemen don’t waste their time.

On average, people spend 40-60 minutes in lines.

Despite the bad weather, the air show was attended by about 130 thousand people.

The sellers of soft drinks suffered damage the most. Water cost 5 times more than in Moscow. A small bottle of tea – 120 rubles ($4).


At some point, the  spectators climbed onto the roof of exhibition halls. 10 minutes later they were driven away by the police.

    Lots of great pictures! Thanks! Interesting…most of the civilian jet airliners seem to look alike now. The SU 100 Special looks a lot like the Boeing 737, for example.

    The clouds upstaged the planes. And someone needs to drop some colored water over Texas (preferably on Rick Perry).

    • testicules says:

      Marxi….. Do you not like him because he is religous or because he is republican? He has a good shot of being the next president. Overthrowing the current Marxist president.

  8. Russia’s star is eclipsing the U.S. The Russia people do not have to suffer yet from “cultural diversity” ,Limousine Liberals,and the homosexual agenda.
