Air Base Bykhov

Welcome to Bykhov air base where missile air divisions have been dislocated up to 1990.

Some constructions of the air base are now used by civilians. The building in the picture was burnt and abandoned.

The air base is supplied with two landing strips. The small one which is 2 km long is intended for jets protecting the air base.

Now the space is used by instructors of driving schools.

The principal landing strip is 3 km long and was intended for supersonic rocket carrier.

Now the entire space is abandoned.

This territory was occupied by rocket carriers.

    Man, Russia has the coolest abandoned places. I’d love to take a year and explore Russia’s lost treasures!

    Wow, an ant hill! First for E.R.! Now I definitely know there are ants in Russia. ;-)

    Those pics remember me some fsp games, with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in front of the list…

    Cool pictures! Ever wonder though…what if all the money that has been spent in not only Russia, but almost everywhere in the world, on a war that thankfuly never happened was spent on things like health care, etc, where would we be today? Just think about it. We as a species could already have bases on the moon and mars and perhaps be making headway further into space. Just saying. Thanks for the pics!

    I always am surprised by the massive Soviet-era facilities in Russia that are now completely abandoned! So strange.
