Rare Photos of Yuri Gagarin During His First Fifteen Hours After First Flight to Space

So since it’s “Cosmonautics Day” today in Russia which is devoted to first flight to space, let’s see some more interesting “Cosmonautics” photo. Namely we have here photos of Yuri Gagarin made during first fifteen hours after he returned from his first ever flight to space. First photo is made two hours after he landed.

Colonels and commanders that arrived to the Gagarin landing site on a helicopter.

During his flight he had a few technical problems, but final last landing process went like planned.  Here is Yuri arrived to the scientific facility for inspection.

    Great post for a Great Man. This American views him as a world hero.

    Great collection of pics, however, the captions are absolute crap. All those pics were taken shortly after Gagarin’s landing (tens of minutes, few hours at maximum). He still has the blue inner insulation garment, the pics were taken prob’ly at local Soviet office in Saratov, before Yuri was escorted to Engels air base. Only afterwards he was flown to Samara.
    Anyway, thanks for posting these! ;-)
