Planes die like this


The outgoing year was marked by heavy losses in terms of aviation. On Khodynka, the exposition of aircraft was destroyed, the WWA in Monino was closed, and finally the training base of the Moscow Aviation Institute and Moscow Power Engineering Institute in the Bear Lakes was liquidated, where I went this time.

1. More recently, airplanes were strictly guarded, including dogs, but now there is no one here. The reason is probably that the territory is transferred to the center of space communications. Nearby already established several new "plates".

2. Two MiG-23 fighters stand on the edge. Open brake parachute compartment.

3. Inside the plane of the aircraft have a honeycomb structure, light, but not very stable, as the inscriptions on the aerodynamic surfaces resemble.

4. Exhaust nozzle of the engine. The engine is in place, not like in similar aircraft on SPUR.

5. Niche for cleaning the chassis.


7. Damaged, probably during transportation, wing. It does not matter: these planes will soon be "kirdyk."

8. In addition to the aircraft at the site was a helicopter Mi-24.

9. For service in the board there are special connectors.

10. Empty cargo compartment (it was a transport and combat helicopter).

11. In the rear cockpit - the remains of avionics.


13. Cabin.

14. Next to the tires neatly immersed tail.

15. Inside it is such a beauty.

16. The wings are nearby. Sorry, no screws and gearbox.

17. There are also a few 21-MiGs in the parking lot.

18. Here, too, everything is fine with the engine.


20. Headlamp under the wing.

21. All caps with chains, as expected, beauty.

22. The plane, of course, is heavily stripped in terms of equipment, but the wires are mostly in place.

23. In the cockpit of the MiG - high-tech bath.

24. It was the third generation, but the fourth on the site is well represented.

25. MiG-29. Nose cone lying next to the radar neatly removed.

26. Keel.

27. Here is another MiG, in a worse condition. However, it can be more interesting, because everyone saw them complete.

28. I climb on the broad back of the fighter.

29. The planes are separated, broken fuel lines jutting out.

30. Between engine compartments - a container for a brake parachute.

31. The skin was torn off like leather, with ribs and vessels protruding.



34. The system of wires, tubes, waveguides is aesthetic in its complexity.

35. In the little forest next to the planes I find engines taken from MiGs and from a helicopter.

36. They just lie on the ground, partially covered with a tarp.

37. They are like hearts prepared for transplantation and trapped in a garbage can.

38. This heart has served its resource.

      It’s just f * c, your heart bleeds when you see something like that, you won’t measure it with money, how much resources, man-hours spent on production, and everything is so simply flushed into the toilet, even an empty case is valuable, and you can attach it at least somewhere ... and there are many such landfills in the country, in the Far East and Siberia in particular

      This is how, bit by bit, the history of the state is being erased. Then, after 10 years, it would be possible to "draw" a new one.

    But what is so terrible here, well, the old equipment, it is necessary to dispose of it, it’s a shame that the academy in Monino was closed, I’m afraid that the museum will be sawed, and this is already scary

    it’s not clear that we don’t have enthusiasts who could restore
    and then show at exhibitions and even fly on these airplanes
    or is it the principle of our state (I’ll not eat it myself or give it to others)

      Enthusiasts who are able to contain a combat fighter (repair, refuel, maintain) in the WORLD are a couple of dozen people who have long wanted to receive.
      In general, it is surprising that they still did not pull on metal. Judging by the photographs, they were disassembled for details for other boards.

      Foes, the storage base was located in the desert, which allows them to save the planes from the mid 50s! And this is the Moscow region, here storage without hangars is generally not possible.

    For this technique you need hangars!
    And most importantly, there should be a system. So that children from the school bench would be taken on excursions to such places, they would show the technique, tell stories related to them, who flew these airplanes and helicopters, in which military operations she took part, thereby instilling love for the sky, love for aviation in general, only with From early childhood, a person’s attitude to real values ​​is formed and formed!

    And there is no system, there is only a scheme, a thieves' scheme, everything is for sale. A year ago, on one of the sites, I saw my training school in Belarus, or rather what was left of it. And now, looking at these photos, I experience the same feelings. We can’t live differently or we don’t want to, everything must be broken, destroyed, everything that has been created for decades, everything is under the root, we are breaking our lives and our children, but the end and the edge is not in sight. what will go into private hands, what will be scrapped. Indeed, "Ivans who do not remember their kinship"

    Like corpses untidy, by God. Already crept ... It is not so with what was pride and glory.

    It was just as painful to look at the new, but unnecessary for our army tanks. Stood in hundreds, slowly rusted New and after repair. Doomed to be melted down because they were "morally obsolete". They were cut for a few years later ...

    Bear Lakes ... There they tried to make me a lieutenant, but the "grandfather" of the Soviet Army turned out to be "stronger" than a group of Air Force officers. By the way, relatively - strictly guarded, "- the author said in vain. Even then, in the glorious 80s, there were several escape routes for the" self-propelled ", without any damage to health. And the planes, well, we do not save people, what we care about metal

    My Dad studied at the Moscow Aviation Institute before the Second World War. At that time, the Moscow Aviation Institute included not just a training airfield and flying club, but also a full-fledged flight unit: according to the curriculum, the future creators of aviation equipment had to fly 50 hours with an instructor. Who wanted - could improve. Because there was a POWERFUL SOVIET AIRCRAFT.
    In Kiev, the KVIAVU Air Force training aerodrome was also destroyed, where all the post-war combat aircraft were assembled. We thought it over before we destroyed everything, and made an aviation museum on the basis of the NAU (former KII GA).

    Thank God! This bloodsucker (Serdyukov) seems to have been stopped. Who writes here about aesthetics ?! So much of everything was destroyed, starting with the GRU special forces and ending with the appearance of these aircraft. For such actions in America, they would be imprisoned "for life."
