4 Former Airfield Protasovo

Former Airfield Protasovo

Posted on April 13, 2012 by team

It is another abandoned military unit, this time with a former airfield Protasovo in the Ryazan region.

The airfield was initially used to store training L-29 of Czech production. They were used by students of a military school they used to call “the school of kamikaze”.

The town is still inhabited but there are no citizens connected with aviation anymore, mostly representatives of the former Soviet republics.

The airfield seems to be working somehow too, here stand: An-2 and two units of Mi-2 in a doubtful condition, some sports aircrafts and few small helicopters of business class. On land only a couple of hangars and an aerodrome control tower are used.

    80% should say casual encounters

    The welding on some pipework is very messy, I would never have allowed it. Otherwise, this is an interesting post..

    Instruction how to use…boots!
    Looks more like “Instruction on how to repair boots” At least to someone who does not know a word of Russian, but has watched his grandfather repair boots many years ago
