Farnborough International Air Show, England, the strict and conservative event where big guys of different countries meet and sign multi-million military and civil aviation contracts. This is the Russian "Klimov Corporation" section - one of the biggest
Russian aviation companies. Sure, they have plenty of customers, but they know how to attract even more! And those planes of "Klimov" can be as serious as those ones on this archive recording from Old Soviet Secret Files:
Thirty eight years ago, in 1970 there was a hundred year anniversary of Vladimir Lenin, the guy who inspired Russian people to overthrow the previous Tsar government in Russia in 1917. He was a real icon for many Russians and so in one Siberian town some woodcutters decided to celebrate this anniversary by cutting all the trees on a big field leaving only those that would form a really huge message "100 Years to Lenin". There were no Google Earth back there, no satellite photos on Internet, no Internet itself, so they didn't do it
for some Internet trick, like "See what we have down pointing your sat pictures browser to .....". The real reasons are not clear and forgotten now, maybe they got an order from Moscow to make such a big message for American spy satellites, maybe it was their own wish to create something that cannot be observed from the Earth by a regular person. Anyways now, 30 years later we can see it. You can see it from Google yourself following this link. You can see it on google earth yourself.
Russia exports a lot of armaments and military equipments to other countries. Some more countries would like to buy it too but their budgets can't afford them to do this, so Russian engineers have created a full set of fake weaponry for some countries. If you
are a military leader of some not-so-rich country you can be as cool as your more wealthy neighbors. It would be just like a real thing for the foreign satellites or spy-planes, just bring it to the place, inflate and you are done.
Well, Russians are already here. They are riding among us, using our car plates with the secret Russian words embedded into them. The one above starts this series of Russian American Car Plates. It says "I'am first b*tches!", this slangy phrase came from commenting habits to real life. So we put him first. Sometimes they use only Latin alphabet letters, sometimes use tricks to use Latin
letters or even numbers for a Cyrillic letter substitute, thus looking ambiguous for simple Americans but very obvious for any Russian meeting such a plate on the road causing him to understand that this is his fellow immigrant guy is driving ahead. We gonna decipher some of those secret messages American Russians are putting on their plates down there:
