Aviation Museum Under the Open Sky

Posted on July 24, 2014 by team

There is a good aviation museum founded by a Russian pilot in Kurgan. Presently it has fifteen flying aircraft under the open sky. We are going to visit this place today.

“Aviation museum”.

The Soviet jet-fighter MiG-17 was the first mass produced Soviet fighter that went faster than the speed of sound.

Its cabin, just as the cabins of other aircraft in the museum, is in a good condition.

A MiG-19 – a Soviet single-pilot jet-fighter of the second generation. This particular one is an all-weather interceptor.

The MiG-19 was the first mass produced supersonic fighter, a formidable foe of American F-100 Super Sabre and F-4 Phantom II.

Further development of MiG-fighters – the Soviet multipurpose fighter MiG-21. This is also an all-weather interceptor.

The MiG-17 and MiG-19P were brought here to the museum in 1991 to become its first exhibits under the open sky.

MiG-23 – the Soviet multipurpose swing-wing fighter. This one is a two-pilot combat and training modification. Brought to the museum in 1993.
