6 Volunteers Fix Planes in Monino Museum

Volunteers Fix Planes in Monino Museum

Posted on April 30, 2014 by tim

As spring goes on, the Russian aviation museum in Monino decided to open its doors for volunteers.  The museum hosts more than 580 items: planes, helicopters etc stationed on 98 acres of land. This size of territory attracts many of “black” visitors – groups of people penetrating the place from outside to make bootleg photos and sometimes get a piece of the memorabilia from the planes. Partly due to this some of the planes are in need of restoration and renovation. And here where the volunteering effort comes into play.

    The helicopter at the top of Page 4 is actually American – a Piasecki H-21. This particular one was given by Eisenhower to Khruschov as a gift in the late 1950s, and eventually ended up in Monino. It’s a rare bird even in America – I hope they can find the parts to restore it in Russia.
