The Place Where Aircraft Engines Were Tested

Everything you see on these pictures does not exist anymore. All this equipment, stands, engines etc. were scrapped in short terms. The buildings will probably be demolished too. The object is guarded and it was hard to get into, in the end the photographer had to run from the dogs and climb the fence to escape…

The Place Where Aircraft Engines Were Tested

Here they used to test engines.

The control panel had already been disassembled by someone.

Everywhere on the walls are posters with images of engines and instructions.

The stand for testing engines used to be here but was scrapped and taken away.

It’s the filtrating system under the ceiling: the ventilation had to cope with a big amount of exhaust because nearby were many dwelling houses. The walls are rather thick, they had to muffle the sounds of the jet engines.

We go up to see the ventilation system.

Huge thick-walled pipes are here.

The engine is still here.

Here is the fully closed chamber and the exhaust goes directly to the ventilation system.

The huge pipe outputs the jet stream outside.

We can see the engine inside.

Such tackles were used to move the objects.

The control panel was found in the next room.

Overdue food and wiring have been left here.

Is it a helicopter engine?

The constructions are rather complicated.

It reads “Aeroflot”.

Who can imagine what this cage is for?

They have already started to destroy this control panel.

But we move on.

Tests were being watched through this window.

On the ceiling are jet stream reflectors and filters.

Tomorrow nobody will be able to shoot there…

    • LOL…funny you bring this up. Middle School kids in the US are taught to build and fly rockets in the spring and many compete in Washington, DC in the summer. Since this has been going on more than 30,000 of the young rocketeers have beem hired by the space and rocket industry after graduation from college. Now while Norf Kreeyah makes wildass attempts to show the world its twisted panties American and the rest of the FREE world flies rockets daily in testing and succeeds 98% of the time. Feed your people and not your fat generals.

      • Uh… because toy rockets are comparable to complexity of a ICBM?

        Are you sure you’re not a janitor at NASA? You sure sound stupid.

      • This would make a lot more sense if the US had a way to get actual people to the ISS. Lock-Mart may be building missiles, but not for the space program. Oh, and there’s that $56 billion that George Bush spent on missile defense that didn’t work. And the $750 billion/year defense budget. Generals here in US aren’t fat, but they aren’t cheap.

    • Sooner or later, later in this case, one of them would finally work…

      I’ll believe it’s anything other then a fluke when they can launch them repeatedly, without 1rst, 2nd stage failures etc.

      In other words i’m still not impressed. However monumental they think it was for their image.

    • Rocket launches alone do not impress me. Being able to run a country well enough that it can feed it’s own people while still being able to launch rockets too, that impresses me.

    • Shouldn’t Captain Obvious already know? 🙂 A couple of the break rooms at NASA where I used to work had Nintendo, Xbox, and Playstations to relieve stress. But the gamepads I see look like no other…Russian copy of a Super Nintendo maybe?

  1. LOL, just a bit less than a third down is a table with several joypads on it. One of them is the SJ Pro Pad for the Sega Megadrive. Best pad I ever used.

  2. everything is fine they just don’t bother to clean up when they are finished they just move on to a newer place. Then they leave everything for us to see.
