Altai Regional Aviation Museum


In the Altai region, not far from Barnaul, in the territory of the Lesnoy airfield, there is an interesting air museum.
I would even call this museum private, since there is no state. he has no support. Our government история aviation I don’t need it. All exhibits that are located there have been saved, restored and maintained at the expense of enthusiasts.

And then I propose to look at what is exposed there:

The MiG-17 is a Soviet jet fighter developed by the Mikoyan and Gurevich design bureau at the end of the 1940s. The model was intended to replace the MiG-15.

IL-103 five-seater single-engine piston passenger aircraft-air taxi. It is stored there. Belongs to some kind of commerce.

Aero L-29 "Dolphin" - Czechoslovak training aircraft. It is the first Czechoslovak serial jet aircraft. The most massive jet trainer in the world.

Not quite a good shot, but as I could, I jumped)))

Aero L-39 "Albatross" - Czechoslovak combat training aircraft.

Created to replace the training aircraft Aero L-29 Delfin. In the year 1972 was chosen as the main training aircraft of the countries participating in the Warsaw Pact.

MiG-21 - Soviet multipurpose fighter. MiG-21 became the first aircraft of the MiG with a delta wing.

The most common supersonic combat aircraft in the world. It was mass-produced in the USSR from 1959 to 1985 a year, as well as in Czechoslovakia, India and China. Used in many armed conflicts. Due to the mass production, it was distinguished by a very low cost: MiG-21МФ, for example, was cheaper than even the BMP-1.

Su-17 - Soviet fighter-bomber, developed in the first half of the 1960-s.

The first Soviet aircraft with a variable geometry wing. For three decades he was in service with the Air Forces of the USSR and Russia, widely exported, used in a number of armed conflicts.

Su-25 - Soviet / Russian armored subsonic attack aircraft designed to directly support ground forces over the battlefield day and night with a direct view of the target, as well as the destruction of objects with given coordinates around the clock in any weather conditions. In the Russian troops got the nickname "Rook".

This photo clearly shows the armored cockpit of the attack aircraft.

Well, a couple of photos of those who saved it and restored it. Thanks to these people, a museum appeared.

By the way, in the near future there are more 5 exhibits in the plans for replenishing the museum.

    A deep bow to those who created and maintain this museum. More to such people!

      Of course, the people who saved the planes deserve gratitude, of course, plus the author for the photo, but what I see as a museum is difficult (like most expositions in Russia), exhibits on the site, whose condition will deteriorate very quickly. .I think it is easiest to provide social burden to business representatives with the help of the municipal administration laughing (ideas unfortunately end there) About the Su-17 I would like to add, the presented sample, a modification of the M-3.

    Due to the mass production, it was very low cost: the MiG-21MF, for example, was cheaper than even the BMP-1.

    Interesting fact! I never heard that a combat jet aircraft was cheaper than ground equipment.

    No words ... Well done. Where is the state? I don’t ask about business ... Why do enthusiasts bear the main burden in preserving history in its material embodiment? Did the governor come to watch them? Or is he afraid that they would not ask questions?

      Our region is poor - subsidized, from natural resources only the earth underfoot and the sky overhead, people and that would be enough, but ....... there is always this "BUT". 80% of the entire regional budget falls on the regional center itself, in which, in addition to the 3-4 still remaining large plants (the number of workers at which is at most 2-5 thousand people, and this despite the fact that in Soviet times only one CHPP-3 more than 2,500 people worked), everything is built up with hypermarkets and shopping and entertainment centers, which, given the low purchasing power of the population, are also not entirely profitable. Nevertheless, factories are being closed, and shopping malls are opening in their place. Where the money is asked to come from, everything goes into private hands.
      And besides all the secondary things, which this museum apparently is, at the regional administration (whose ordinary employee receives a salary below the regional average, i.e. below 10-15 thousand rubles, but this is ordinary. But the income of the deputies According to the declarations of the Regional Legislative Assembly, constitute, with few exceptions, from 1 to 2 million a year), the state structure has a duty to maintain, and with it the prestige of the region: all kinds of cheese exhibitions to arrange, and sell agricultural products to other regions, and then world order Chicks, not paying attention to the fact that their own population is forced to purchase food at an exorbitant price. The governor, however, we have done well, take care of us, is afraid that we would not be left without his guardianship, like our father (ironic smirk).

        Was at your place. And in Barnaul and Teletsky. Vorsin beer is a masterpiece. baked goods from "Cheburyat" - my son still remembers. A friend lives in Barnaul. He works as a head of the department. wife vice-rector. Both are doctors of science. And you have a fertile land! People are very friendly. Good luck!

          Well, Teletskoye Lake is not with us in the Altai Territory, but with our neighbors in the Altai Mountains. Europeans often confuse us.)))

    There are photographs of people, no names. This is wrong, such people need to know by name.

    Many thanks to the author of the article, thanks to which we learned about the air museum near Barnaul on the territory of the Lesnoy airfield. Many thanks to those people who have collected and are collecting exhibits for this museum and are following them. It is a pity that the state does not need this.

    To find such people for the Air Force Museum in Mona ... The exhibits are horrible as ragged. And in an amicable way it is necessary to create pieces of 10 museums across the country at old airfields in insulated large hangars

      Thank you, generous and grateful, most of all I liked the walking planet rover. The green armored train (obviously not completed), is it not under the launcher?
