17 Air Force Museum

Air Force Museum

Posted on August 27, 2012 by team

One training base near Monino was disbanded and now available for any visitors. It’s the place that does not function anymore but where still so much interesting can be found. We gonna spend some time here: inside the base premises and around the territory where old aircrafts must have found their final stand.

Educational building is abandoned but still guarded.

Huge hangar nearby was allegedly used during WWII.

Have you ever hidden from rain under a plane?

Can’t get in…

    I think that thing is an “XYZ grid” common for doing trajectory and vector calculation or designing antenna.

      Hello JC,
      I was there in the 90’s when the military where still in charge ; really sad to see the Museum today. There are many very interesting aircraft iside the hangars, even 2 ‘flying saucers’ from the 50’s. The Museum is about 40 KM north to Moscou
      Regards, John

    The museum is quite amazing and definitely worth a visit!

    I can’t believe what this once glorious place looks like. I used to go to <> museum as a kid, and it was in a good shape, nothing was broken/stolen.

  10. Alex says:

    I have done a lot of exploring in the UK and some of the pictures I have seen from Russia look simply amazing. If I was to visit, how safe would exploring a site like this usually be? Thanks
