2 Soviet Experimental All Terrain Vehicles

Soviet Experimental All Terrain Vehicles

These are mainly projects of Likhachev's plant, strangest of them that were never serially produced. Construction of army all-terrain vehicles in the USSR went
much further than construction of ordinary cars. Engineers were brave enough in their ideas but they were doomed to remain in the world of fantasies.

11 That Very Place Where the First Man in Space Died

That Very Place Where the First Man in Space Died

55 years ago a man flew to space and what's more important he managed to come back! But seven years after, taking his penultimate exam to further fly alone, he crashed with his mentor in MiG-15 aircraft... Why did he decide to fly?? Probably he was missing the sky... This publication is about his deathplace. It has been recently visited by blogger fotografersha, who made an interesting story to describe the shots. Firth of all, it gets heavy on your heart once you're there. Many years are gone, but seeing this
circle where the craft crashed, is still heartbreaking. For most Russian people Yura Gagarin is an ideal person, almost unreal. He undoubtedly deserved to be the first man in space. And the country is proud. The official version of the crash: due to the rapidly changing situation in the air, the crew was forced to make an aggressive maneuver and spinned in. The pilots desperately tried to get the craft into a hoorizontal position but it collided on the ground and both died.
