75 years of the Air Force in the Far East – the air show, aircraft exhibition and Insights


Last weekend I visited a festival dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Air Force in the Far East, it was the celebration of the founding of the 11th Army stationed in the region. Russian blogger went there and here is thestory he brought back:

When I was 15, I dreamed of becoming a pilot, but I would have never became a pilot because of my bad health, but aviation theme is interesting to me even now, so when the day «X» came I went to the airport with a camera.

You need to go three kilometers to the platform where an aircraft technique stands; there is nothing bad as there was organized bus service just for those who do not like to walk. But in order to take the bus you had to stand in queue, but it is minor compared to the fact that there are no toilets and no points of water sales throughout the route and there are hundreds of people! Is it difficult to organize these stationary items? If you don’t know how to do this then call merchants they will teach you.

 

Let’s go deeper into the history, 2012 – the celebration of 100 years of the Air Force in Russia, photos from the same airport in Khabarovsk – http://golovko.livejournal.com/112978.html

A lot of people arrived by car, as a result all the yards around turned into temporary parking.

I did not want to risk and arrived on a bicycle and after all I was very happy that preferred the bike to the car.

    -It is so amazing how truly large these airframes are when people are standing next to them. The Mi-26 is a beast and even the SU-27 looks more like a heavy bomber than a sleek fighter. Question: is the last picture on page 26 a jet powered snow blower/melter?
    -I appreciate the pictures but I would be more inclined to pay a few bucks per year if each photo had a small description of what it was rather than just general text.

    Nice aircraft show…. many food vendors, thousands of people of all ages and …..no toilets? Is that even legal?

    OK, if you look at the source website, he does mention there is one toilet on the road to the festival.
