  1. Hi, everybody! This helicopter was installed in Lyubertsy town near Moscow. I live near it. The name of this street is “Voinov-Internatsionalistov”. It means that this street is called so for memory of Soviet soldiers which took part in Afghanistan war in 1979-1989. I saw how this helicopter was installed. First they closed road movement down this street. Then they tried to install this helicopter onto this stella but they failed. This helicopter was standing some days near this stella and children were crambling on it. Then they installed it successfully. It’s strange that this helicopter is flying down, not up. It looks like the helicopter is going to fall down.

  2. LAST! (Well, for now.)

    I like the international caution sign for “Step between the spikes not on them” in the first picture. πŸ™‚

    And that would indeed be a cool art installation to have in your town.

  3. Drunken pilot landed there in the middle of the night. . .

    . . . or maybe Russian Technical school students playing pranks like MIT and CalTech.

  4. What’s unusual in these pics? There so many military stuff are scattered all over the Russia. Such helicopter is exists in my own city, and pair of MIG-15, and some of T-34 tanks, and even a police BRDM-1. It’s very common in Russia, and there’s absolutely nothing to care about.
