However, first things first ...
To begin with, I propose to visit a static exhibition of aviation equipment, where modern civil and military models of equipment were presented, as well as historical symbols of the national aviation. And so, let's go ...
Short take-off and landing aircraft DHC-6 Twin Otter Series 400. Manufacturer VIKING AIR LIMITED (Canada)
Multipurpose AH-2-100 with a new engine. By the way, this device on the same day arranged a solo demonstration performance in the sky over Zhukovsky.
Passenger AN-158, solemnly transferred to the MAKS-2013 Cuban airline "Cubana". Standing on a static parking lot. Apparently, an agreement with Antonov on the exposition until the end of MAKS-2013.
Aircraft MIG-29SMT. If I am not mistaken, this particular model is to be purchased in our Air Force in return for MIG-35.
I propose to make a small lyrical digression and look at, let's say, the "home" models of ultralight helicopters for business, leisure and agriculture. Started ...
And now I propose to go directly to the sky. The weather that day left much to be desired. Monotonous gray sky with elements of a small rain, which is closer to the end of the next day at MAKS-2013 turned into heavy rain. However, move on to the good ...
Swifts appear in the sky. The audience is delighted.
Further in the sky there are three Russian prospective PAK FA T-50. After a spectacular passage, two cars leave for landing. One car remains in the sky and performs demonstrations.
This is followed by single and double performances with aerobatics.
This is followed by demonstration performances of the passenger AIRBUS A-380, which was smoothly drawn from the audience from a static parking lot in the strip. It should be noted that this is a very agile machine in the sky, in spite of its size, the pilots laid turns one after another at low altitudes. Of special note is the approach that has been made from a short distance as if it was a lightweight fighter combat. Good impressions produced Frenchman.
Then a lonely "Raphael" appears in the sky, if I am not mistaken. The fighter pilot of the French production shows a solo performance with aerobatics at high speeds. It should be noted that the fighter aircraft made an impression as a highly maneuverable, fast, well-kept vehicle engine climb. Impressed by the Frenchman. I begin to understand the choice of the Hindus.
Further in the sky appears aerobatic team "BREITLING". The guys flew around great for about 20 minutes, made a real show. Spectacular, spectacular, professionally.
And again there is a solo performance with aerobatics. The weather is getting worse and worse, it starts to rain.
By the beginning of the "Russian Knights" performance, the sky was completely overcast, a light rain turned into a shower, so please forgive me for the quality of the picture. However, hiding behind an umbrella from the pouring rain, I still managed to take some pictures.
And lastly, I suggest you go back to the pavilions, which has been presented many new promising elements of aviation - space industry. It was simply unrealistic to get around, but a few were quite possible. What I did. We look ...
Further, someone might be interested in developments in the field of navigation in general aviation instrument VNIIRA "Navigator". The developments are presented on stationary portable devices, among which I noticed a tablet from "Samsung".
Just before the release, I stumbled upon an automatic installation of the ".50 cal FN M3M Machine Gun" from "FN Herstal".
And the very last exhibit I saw from the State Concern UkrOboronProm is the P-27P and P-27ET air-to-air missiles that are part of the weapons of our MiG and Su fighters.
This concludes our virtual photo tour ends. Pouring rain showers. There is a long 5-hour return trip. Considering the fact that on the day of the closing of MAKS-2013 on Sunday, 01.09.2013 also rained a heavy rain, I would take it as a joy that I managed to photograph at an overcast pagoda. So what are .. I publish the article exclusively on the "Military Review". See you again!
