Planes Doomed to Die Soon

This year Russian has lost some interesting aviation objects. An exposition of planes on Khodynka near Moscow was destroyed, Air Forces Academy in Monino was closed and, finally, a training base of the Moscow Power Engineering Insitute and Moscow Aviation Institute was liquidated as well. We are going to visit the last place today.
