4 Life is Changing  People

Life is Changing People

Alisa is the name, the name of one Soviet rock band that was pretty much underground at first but still had tons of fans. Those fans tried to look rebellious, like the band leader, and not conform with society in any possible way: drinking, smoking, wearing torn clothes and atypical haircuts. Sergei was one such "ALISA" fan, they were called "ALISOMAN" the word derived from the
"Alisa" band name and "mania". Now Sergei is a photographer and twenty years older, so he decided to find his friends from the times when they were rebels and compare how they were and what they became. Like this guy Andrei, previously known as Andreich and notoriously wild, he is now a manager. Let's see more of Sergei's friends, boys and girls, then and now.

4 Dagestani People of 1933

Dagestani People of 1933

Dagestan is in Southern Russia and yet very different from what you see in the rest of Russia. Different now, and was different back then in 1933 as well. It was even much more different then, just look at this guy, and it was considered a pretty normal national dress. Even now, they use
those coats somewhere there but not that often, of course. What else was cool about Degastan in 1933 and Dagestan now? It's in the mountains. Awesome views, nature, small houses. Very large pictures you can view fullscreen with a click. Common, lets take a look:

2 Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Superjet is a new passenger jet being manufactured by the Sukhoi company, the mothership of SU jets. Now it has reached the stage in the design of a passenger machine where yet more tests need to be done, and for those tests they brought it to Moscow. For some reason they decided to bring it inside another plane, one of the biggest cargo planes, an AN-124 Ruslan, rather than to fly it over
by itself - which it can pretty much do already as over 45 of these planes have been shipped to customers around the world. But this particular model is a modified jet, so they decided to transport it by plane and that's why we have the photos now to look at. Marina has travelled to this event and took the photos, thanks Marina, and let's see what she has got!

Chinese Air Force in Lipetsk Russia

Three SU-30MKK war planes of the Chinese air force have arrived in Lipetsk, Russia.

needs of the Chinese air force in the early 2000s.  They are very similar to the SU-30MK planes that were designed for and sold to the Indian air force, but still there are some differences. The Russian prototypes used to design those planes were called SU-27. Sergey has taken some photos of those and has a story.
