Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

When traveling on an atomic ice-breaker, the crew often make stops and drop different equipment onto the ice, because the mission is not purely entertainment but rather scientific research.

sometimes it can happen very fast and these things are hard to predict. Now, this time when Sergey travelled with an icebreaker team, they had three containers of scientific equipment, life supplies and a few people out there on ice, when suddenly the ice broke and people were cut off from the ship.

TU-154 Transported by Ground

When the plane can't fly but needs to be moved, it hits the roads. Not an easy task for a big TU-154 passenger plane. This colored plane belonged to a

Russian Airforce of 1915

We've seen here a lot of the contemporary Russian air force, but what about 90 years ago, what did it look like? This is how. Horses, horses, some planes, horses again, no pavement on the runways, wooden sleds and more. Let's see it in some more detail
