View Of the Plane Cemetery From Your Apartment

Posted on October 3, 2011 by

Central Aerodrome at Khodynka Field built by N. E. Zhukovsky, was the first aerodrome in Moscow. May 9, 1945, early in the morning, a plane landed there carrying the German Instrument of Surrender. Now, Khodynka Field is a big residential area with  an ice rink. At first, they were going to build a museum there, reflecting the history of Russian aviation, but it never happened. Here we have: E155M (E266M) interceptor; MiG-25PU combat training aircraft; La17-R unmanned reconnaissance aeral vehicle.

    I bet russians study the necromancy to raise this undead horde. That’s the only reason they keep it.

      in ’99 ,while NAfTO bomb us in Serbia, we built numerous fake airplanes and use it as decoy. cost for some bombs and missiles which were used by nafto is over 100 000 $ … so russinas can sell this items or ,god forbid, use it on they own land for this purpose . :))

    Some people look at this and think that eastern Europe has a bunch of junk military equipment which is true to some extent.However in the west we do the same thing.Near Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson AZ there is a huge area called AMARC better known as “The Bone Yard” this is where US military aircraft do to die or be placed in long term storage for possible later use/collection of spare parts.There are also several very similar yards out in the desert used by commercial airlines for the same purpose.The only difference is that in Russia you will see a multitude of such storage/disposal facilities in stead just a handful and some are better organized than others.In these photos you can tell that the aircraft still in use like the MI-24 they have been stripped on everything useful and some of the aircraft look as though they may have been used as displays near the front gate of a base or in front of a building and where later removed(the MiG-21 lacking landing gear but having dummy missiles for example)

    Many years from now they will be very rare and valuable. Ford Model T’s were once thrown away like this.
