13 Some Rare Tu-128 Intercepter Jets of Rzhevsk

Some Rare Tu-128 Intercepter Jets of Rzhevsk

These TU-128 planes are pretty rare. In the 1970s, only ten planes were produced and this is probably the only one that survived. It was found at the plane repair plant in Rzhevsk,
Russia. They were used to train Soviet border guard interceptor pilots, and what made them particularly unique is that the instructor pilot's cockpit is on top of the plane.

2 Abandoned Electric Vehicles Factory in Kiev

Abandoned Electric Vehicles Factory in Kiev

Most of our abandoned posts come from Russia and not many from other Soviet republics, even Ukraine, one of the largest ones, doesn't often send us pictures of abandoned stuff. This time a Moscow urban explorer, Sam Namos, while he was traveling to Ukraine has visited a local abandoned
factory and taken these photos. The place itself is an abandoned factory which produced electric vehicles. Not the modern ones like Teslas, etc, but rather electric trams and trolley buses. Some of them still stand in the warehouses of this place. Let's take a look!

10 An Abandoned Interplanetary Communication Link Centre

An Abandoned Interplanetary Communication Link Centre

"Tens of kilometers thru the snow, on foot. Barely walkable path thru the forest. Holding our breath we understand with each step we are getting closer and closer to the object. The place we made all this way is just around the corner". - this is how Ulter1or remembers his trip to this huge satellite abandoned complex deep in the woods. He, is like the other
explorator Armahema, doesn't give away his real name - they explore the places that are often forbidden to enter, so the secrecy might be a must for them. However the photos he bring back are purely awesome. Massive post inside, a huge - over 25 meters (or 75 feet!) in diameter abandoned scientific satellite dish  just around the corner!

10 Residential Areas of Pripyat: Forests In Place of Streets

Residential Areas of Pripyat: Forests In Place of Streets

"What photos people make in Pripyat or Chernobyl? Usually those are some well known land marks you can see on every photo - abandoned amusement park, a movie theater etc. All those landmarks are in one place and usually Chernobyl tours don't let people wander somewhere else. However personally I was always interesting in some "underground" Chernobyl life - places where you
could see day-to-day life of the people back in year 1986 (when the power plant exploded). So today during our trip to Pripyat we will go to these residential areas and will see the forests which has grown on the city lawns and other things", says Maxim, the visitor of the Pripyat area. Would you like to see this too? Then welcome inside!

Abandoned Exploration Tools and Vehicles of Franz Josef Land

You probably remember that a few days ago there was a posting about the seasons changing in Franz Josef Land - one of the most Northern Russian islands, being on the latitude of Northern Greenland, and being
uninhabited. However, the fact that nobody lives there doesn't mean that there is no activity. In fact, there are tons of the old Soviet vehicles, tools, tractors, devices and you name it. Want to take a look?

5 Abandoned Childrens Place

Abandoned Childrens Place

We have here an abandoned Soviet place for kids. A lot of the large Soviet factories had those compounds around the big cities, or if the company was really big and "rich" - right at the Southern coast of the Black Sea. They were sending the kids of the workers during the vacations for free to have fun and rest. A free
summer camp and stuff. However, now a lot of these places lie abandoned. Especially the ones that are not on the coast. The ones on the coast were quickly acquired by private owners and now are premium hotels, etc. So let's take a look at the photos photographer Deletant has taken while there.
