2 Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Superjet is a new passenger jet being manufactured by the Sukhoi company, the mothership of SU jets. Now it has reached the stage in the design of a passenger machine where yet more tests need to be done, and for those tests they brought it to Moscow. For some reason they decided to bring it inside another plane, one of the biggest cargo planes, an AN-124 Ruslan, rather than to fly it over
by itself - which it can pretty much do already as over 45 of these planes have been shipped to customers around the world. But this particular model is a modified jet, so they decided to transport it by plane and that's why we have the photos now to look at. Marina has travelled to this event and took the photos, thanks Marina, and let's see what she has got!

2 Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

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. So people disembark onto the ice and spend time doing some scientific stuff, staying for days on the ice near the ship. However, there is a risk of the ice shattering,
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. See how it went further on:

6 Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

I am not big fan of the army marching and showing what they have, however they do do this and it makes for pretty nice photos of the military equipment, which are to my taste and looks pretty captivating, so why not post them? Also, they do it in Primorye, which is on the Pacific
Coast, and not for the first time. Basically they have drills there (and not near Ukraine), and lately there are rumors in Russia that the Chinese army has been moved closer to the border, so maybe they are doing something there. Anyways, here are the photos:
