We have visited the MAKS show more than once ( Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), but there are still many pictures to share. Let's go back to the show.
That A-10 is an amazing machine. I love it.
It’s amazing they can build those jet engines like that. “OK, I think we just need one more little tube connecting this to that and we’ll be done!” Factory’s like refinery’s freak me out too. Pipes everydamnwhere!
I witnessed a squadron of them
upstate New York on day, very cool.
The amazing thing is that old ari frames like the B-52 and the old Bear are still flying and viable platforms for combat today
A. Bunka here. The Airbus a380 is a beautiful plane that will go down in history as a flying white elephant. Boeing market research predicted there was a market for perhaps 300 of these behemoth’s, and today there about 250 orders for them. It will lose money, just like the SST lost money.
Fantastic Photos, Thanks for sharing – all of them.
Awesome pics! Thanks very much. Good to see Russian and USA aircraft in “peaceful coexistence”. Just think what an aviation development joint venture could be between the USA and Russia.
How long has this air show been running? Is it always in Russia? And how long has US military been a part of it?
The first MAKS show was held in 1993. Ever since then its been held once every two years. It’s always in Russia, just on the outskirts of Moscow.
A B52 pilot once told me they have to adjust the weight and balance every year. It seems there are hundreds of wires and pipes that no one understands but no one will remove any of them in case they are important. The original developers have moved on and no one is quite sure about the diagrams left behind!
