Air Force Museum in Monino


1. Monino - aviation village to the last bush. The alley along the road from the station to the museum is indicated by miraculously preserved stelae.

Air Force Museum in Monino

2. By the Day of Aviation they tint.

3. The first thing that a visitor sees in the open area of ​​the Air Force Museum is the giant B-12. He attracts so much attention to himself that nobody notices the surrounding airplanes.

4. And in vain. To the right of the entrance is the very first exhibit of the museum - Tu-4 bomber. In 1958, it was repaired in the hangar number 6 (now there are warplanes standing there), but the then head of the academy, S. A. Krasovsky, decided not to transfer it to the front part, but to establish a museum in Monino. The plane is in a unique state of preservation, photos of its interiors can be viewed on the museum website. History the Tu-4, which appeared as a copy of the American atomic bomb carrier B-29, is best described in the movie “Super Fortress in Russian”.

5. In the neighborhood there is an airplane of a purely domestic development - a jet Tu-16. On its basis, Tupolev made the first passenger jet aircraft - the Tu-104.

6. The T-4, better known as Sotq, became a significant milestone in the Soviet aircraft industry. It does not make much sense to talk about him here, it’s better to get acquainted with the film “The Tragedy of the Russian Miracle”. We only note: when transferring the nose to the position for supersonic flight, the cockpit windows completely overlapped, and the pilots had to navigate exclusively by instruments, unlike the Tu-144 or Tu-160.

7. Case "Weave" was made of titanium alloys. The plane reached in flight speed in Mach 1,7.

8. In the inconspicuous corner of the museum, behind the hangar number 8 hiding samples of small aircraft. Left passenger Be-32. For his ability to make a military U-turn (without passengers), he was called the “civilian fighter”. To the right is the Polish M-15 jet Polish maize, nicknamed the demon Belfegor in honor of the demon.

9. We go into the hangar number 8 "Unique aircraft", which stand on the floor and hover under the roof.

10. A replica of the French biplane "Voisin" of the First World War. Actor: starred in the films "Elusive Avengers" and "Two Comrades Served."

11. The first flight copy of the first all-metal ANT-2 aircraft, built in the 1924 year.

12. Through the glass you can look into the cockpit of the stratostat of the USSR-1.

13. Turbolet needs no introduction. I strongly recommend to my readers to watch the film “Death Line Pilot Garnaev”.

14. But the exhibit, which appeared in the museum two years ago, is the space analogue of Buran, BOR-5. It can be seen how much it burned at the entrance to the dense layers of the atmosphere.

15. Helicopters Mil, Kamov, Yakovlev and even one “flying banana” Pyasetsky are located between the hangars.

16. At the seventh hangar placed helicopters, baby.

17. Behind the hangar are, by contrast, the giants: Mi-6 and Mi-26.


19. The largest 4 sector, the largest aircraft, military transport and passenger. The first flight copy of the Tu-114. About him will be the story in the second part.

20. The world's first supersonic vertical takeoff and landing fighter Yak-141, developed to replace the Yak-38, but did not reach the series.

21. Another new exhibit of the museum is the combat training Yak-130. On his transportation from Zhukovsky money was collected by the whole world, I also kissed.

22. Under the keel of a giant Tu-95, a jet "baby" La-15 weighing two and a half tons is hiding.

23. And next to them, our very first turbojet fighter, the MiG-9, surprises us with forms.

24. But how far Mikoyan had gone in twenty years! MiG-25 - the owner of many world records, a unique machine for speed and altitude characteristics.

25. Unmanned reconnaissance Tu-141, still in the ranks.

26. Its launcher.

27. Near the UAV is sanitary Lee-2, which restorers are actively engaged in.

28. On the Open Day you could look inside the fuselage.

29. Next to the plane is a small exposition of medical supplies, songs of the times of the war are played.



32. In the central sector of the museum are the handsome giants 3M, Tu-95, M-50 ...

33. The first prototype of the 4 ++ generation fighter Su-35 is the T-10М-1, converted from the serial Su-27.

34. Alley "Drying." In the foreground is the Su-9B interceptor, followed by the first serial Su-17.

35. A new exhibit of the museum, transferred after the dissolution of the Monino aerodrome training base of the Academy. N. E. Zhukovsky - the second flight copy of the Tu-22М3.

36. Missile carrier chassis. Now armed with 150 such machines.

37. In a similar way, I got to the IL-76M museum. He served for a long time as an educational tool of the Institute. In turn, he was brought to Monino after a major overhaul: in the Baltic, he sat on a lane with unreleased chassis.

38. Inside the plane is in perfect condition, this can be seen in the blog at igor113.

39. View from the ramp Tu-114. It looks. as if IL-76 "gives birth" from the belly of another study guide VVIA - Su-27.

40. At the edge of the museum is the saddest place. This is the so-called "aircraft graveyard", in fact - a sump. Almost all of this technique until the 1995 year served as tutorials for VVA them. Gagarin, when it was transferred to the museum, a part in poor condition. She was all on display until August 2004, when she was dragged to the edge of the territory. Here she suffered greatly and continues to suffer at the hands of vandals. On the right are the remnants of the MiG-23ML, on the left - the Mi-24П.

41. Nearby are four Yak-28 of various modifications: a training Yak-28U, a Yak-28PP radar combat aircraft, as well as the Yak-28L and Yak-28BL bombers.

42. Mig-25RB without wings. As I understand it, these airplanes are being disassembled into parts for the repair of the machines in the exhibition, that is, they are all doomed.

43. In the summer of 2012, the airfield service equipment was installed on the former runway of Moninsky airfield, apparently from the disbanded Academy. Guarded by soldiers. There was one old truck, and a pair of KamAZ booths boiled over. Now the technique was removed.

44. At the same time on the field was this handsome Tu-95MS. One could freely approach and examine him; he stood outside the territory of the museum and was not guarded.

45. In 1988, he sat independently at the Moninsky airfield and for a long time served as a textbook for the Academy. Zhukovsky. Perhaps he is still working.

46. Front landing gear.

47. With the aircraft inside - you can see everything from the same igor113.

48. On the plane there are four turboprop engine NK-12MP power 11 185 hp

49. The diameter of each of the screws 5,6 meter.

50. Rear four-wheel chassis equipped with brakes.

51. The wingspan of the Tu-95 is 50 meters.

52. In the rear part is a cabin with two 23-mm automatic guns GSH-23.

53. Now this plane has already driven into the territory. Now in the collection of the Museum of the Air Force two Tu-95, modifications "H" and "MS". And this is good news.

    But Russia is a great aviation power! With proper attitude and at least minimal funding (and billions are being plundered in the country!), The museum could be visited by hundreds of thousands of people, and it would be in no way inferior to the museum in La Bourget or Dayton.
    But alas ...

        Museum guards - several elderly veterans (museum attendants).
        Well, the fact that she was in the territory of the BBA garrison with access control also added some confidence in its safety.

        By the way, the museum and the BBA are two completely different organizations, although the BBA helped the museum as much as it could.

How many unique samples of technology have been lost forever, and even from what was produced in thousands, not a single copy has been saved. Take the same staffers. How many museums they have alone! And we have? It's a shame.

      Ehhh, not that word, dear colleague!
      I wrote more than once ...
      For example, the barbaric destruction of one of the last Tu-114 in Domodedovo. Thank God - the first copy has been preserved in Monino!

      ... It turned out that the instance itself was legendary, that's what we managed to find out.
      In 1967, Tu-114 opened six foreign lines at once, connecting the capital's Sheremetyevo airport with the cities of New York, Montreal, Tokyo, Beijing, Delhi, Accra, Brazzaville. In addition, the Japanese airline "Jal" has expressed a desire to jointly operate our airliner on the lines Tokyo-Moscow-Paris, Tokyo-Moscow-London, Tokyo-Moscow-Rome and Tokyo-Moscow-Copenhagen. Four aircraft were selected for joint operation: USSR-76464, USSR-76470, USSR-76474 and USSR-76490. On their sides, just below the sill strip, the Jal emblem and the Japan Air Lines inscription were drawn. The first such transcontinental flight took place on April 17, 1967 in a 76464 machine.
      Here is 76464 - exactly the one that was cut.
      If the Japanese were offered, they would gladly have taken it. Maybe something would have paid ...

      It would seem so what? Each spoke, expressed his point of view on the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and the value of scrap metal of the monument “Worker and Collective Farm Girl” by Vera Mukhina. At the same time, thoughts about the enthusiasm of search engines finding, obtaining and restoring the technology of the past war are haunting. Without support, sometimes for their money, not for themselves. It would seem, what is all this for? Probably just to get in touch with the History of the Fatherland ...

      I remember that the omnipotent Eastline in the year 2003, if it does not change my memory, wanted to organize on our base an exhibition show of aviation of our days. After all, a profitable business, and the successes of neighboring Zhukovsky, apparently, do not give rest. Well, it is commendable, but in order to start making money on this, you need to cherish and take care of WHAT WAS. And then in the pursuit of every ruble per square meter, a kilogram of metal and a workplace, which is unkind because you can again allow terrorists to drop planes with passengers, as has already happened. Yes, and passengers, especially zealots of the value of scrap metal, we should not forget about it ...

      I would like, once the “successful entrepreneurs” are ruining everything in order to maximize profits, contact Governor Gromov Boris Vsevolodovich and President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin about the need to seize 10, there is no 20% of the profits of destroyer parking in favor of the Mona exhibition of aircraft equipment. At least they know how to store, restore and organize exhibitions of historical air rarities. Means are sorely lacking.

    The damned Westerners, at the air museum, have all the planes of the Great Patriotic War. Two Me-109 and Fockevulf 190 fly, and how they fly. But we unfortunately did not save much, there are no flying samples at all. More precisely, there are I-16s and Mig-3s, but these are remodelers. I admire people, real aviation enthusiasts, who recover aircraft from their wreckage with their own hands and use their own resources to restore our history. soldier

      I was in this museum in the early 80s, when it was closed. To get into it it was necessary to submit a special application for a visit. So at that time all the exhibits were in perfect condition, no worse than the Amerov ones. According to the accompanying guide, all the aircraft were not a sham but real planes and helicopters ready for flight. Unfortunately photographing was forbidden at that time.

        The museum was NEVER closed.

        It was just that he was on the territory of the BBA garrison, where the access regime was in effect.

        As for the photographs, this is a paid pleasure (in order to develop the museum).

        Museum website:

        Now, as far as I know, the museum does not belong to the RF Ministry of Defense. It belongs to the "Federal State Institution of Culture and Arts Central Museum of the Air Force".
        And the financing is minimal.
        Guides are veterans of the Second World War and the Air Force. Already in age.

    Apparently, the unique museum exhibits in Monino are being destroyed deliberately as part of the "modernization" actions of the oligarchic system of government established in the country. In the same way, they refuse to restore old buildings and structures, declare them emergency and prepare them for demolition in order to free up the area for subsequent development.
    The territory of the former Monino airfield is too tidbit for land speculators and they will not pass by it, as has already happened with the Vystrel training ground and a number of other similar objects located near large cities. True, some hangars can be left behind, but everything that is in the open air is undoubtedly doomed.
    But it would seem that all the business is to declare the aviation museum a national treasure and how to preserve the exhibits, allocating the necessary funds for this by refusing at least one of a series of stupid "image" projects, such as the device of giant fireworks and all kinds of laser " show". But alas. Everything is decided by the notorious, truly cursed market.

      Nothing is destroyed in Monino, the contents of the exhibits are improving. The rotary nozzle was removed from the Yak, it was obviously handed over to the Americans, 50-year-old aircraft (MiG-19) require hangar storage, they don’t sell land in Monino to anyone, they don’t pass it on, everything is strictly. After the departure of the BBA, it became a little worse, but the local authorities are doing everything possible.

      Similar thoughts are inspired by this photo story, Alexey.

      I can throw an "innovative" idea to the President of the Russian Federation, who seems to be concerned about raising a new elite. I would have thrown a cry among the domestic oligarchs, they say, guys, we need sponsors-patrons for the restoration and further maintenance of the museum of Soviet aviation. I would like to see who is who among the modern elite.

      Although something tells me that there will be no presidential cry, no oligarchic response ... And there will be exactly what Alexey wrote about:
      The territory of the former airfield "Monino" is too tasty morsel for land speculators

      Have you been away from the country for a long time?

      “On July 12, 2011, an order was issued to transfer the educational process from Monino to the Voronezh Military Aviation Engineering University. During the liquidation of the academy, the teachers were offered to move to Voronezh. Most of them refused.
      According to the Ministry of Defense, the corps of the former Zhukovsky Academy in Moscow is planned to be transferred to the Academy of the Budget and Treasury of the Ministry of Finance, and the corps of the Gagarin Academy in Monino to the Russian Academy of Justice.
      And the former teachers of the legendary universities, meanwhile, have already made it clear that they expect from Sergei Shoigu a revision of decisions on moving to Voronezh. The most active opposition to the transfer of the Academy to the capital of the Chernozem region was at one time the chairman of the doctoral dissertation council of the university, Lieutenant General Ivan Naydenov. Moreover, he called this decision "madness and falling into the abyss." Recently, Ivan Naydenov said that most of the academy's teachers are ready, at the first call of Shoigu, to "resume work within their native walls" if the minister decides that the academy should be returned to Monino. However, the leadership of the Voronezh Academy believes that this will not happen. "

      (site "", article "Will the Voronezh Academy of Zhukovsky and Gagarin be disbanded?" dated 11.12.2012)

      The confrontation continues.

      Where can I send money?

      Here are my thoughts on the future of the museum.
      If the state is not interested in a museum, then, probably, the public could undertake the creation of a national aviation museum (as well as other technical museums). In the 1920s, there was a society of friends of the air fleet, for example.
      What do you need?
      A group of initiative enthusiasts with a fraction of organizational skills (alas, I myself am not endowed with such, and besides, I do not live in Russia). It would be nice if they were famous aviation people. In general, as many people as possible should be involved in this matter, no matter for what reason they will be ready to help - even advertising, vanity, and pre-election PR. You can finally remember how Vekselberg bought Faberge Easter eggs, or Usmanov bought Rostropovich's collection. And among the rich, there are probably lovers of technology - private museums are proof of this.

      An offer to the site administration. In order to somehow support the museum, organize a fundraising among visitors to the site, and not one-time, but permanent. And to inform what was done on the donation. Enough of regrets and angry matches. It's time to do at least something.

    One of the best reports on air exposure in recent years. From the first glance, processing photos in Photoshop is a somewhat ambiguous reaction, but when you think about it you can’t keep up with the weather and it’s possible to emphasize some interesting details of the exhibits, so the decision justifies itself. Thanks to the textual support of the session. As far as I understand, this is the first part, I look forward to continuing. In general, I respect the author, everything is done very, very, but for some reason it is unsigned.

    He was in Momnino in 1996. Even then, the state of the exhibits raised questions, now I understand it has become even worse. A deep bow to those who keep history and our pride. Tell me where and how to donate.

    the corps of the Gagarin Academy in Monino - the Russian Academy of Justice. Meanwhile, former teachers of the legendary universities have already made it clear that they expect Sergey Shoigu to reconsider decisions on moving to Voronezh. Most active

    In Monino, they plan to expand the cadet corps on the territory of the former BBA, of course the sight is sad, there were 50 doctors and 250 candidates of science, people were left without work, who went where, Monino always voted for the Communists, I think this was the main reason for the transfer of the academy to Voronezh. The task was to destroy the remnants of the SA, in military aviation they are trying to instill the norms of market ideology, which is fundamentally impossible and causes rejection. We will see.

      It is necessary to confiscate - absolutely everything - the materiel from the thieves from Min.Oborona to transfer to the fund of museums (Min.Oborona), to send thieves themselves to be hanged as State criminals, traitors to the Motherland: there can be no excuse for these parasites.

    The museum is very good, was there this summer, spent all day
    Most of the exhibits are in excellent condition, and restoration work is underway, but the pace is not great unfortunately, at least visually. I think the air force is quite able to help its museum ...
    By the way, the town itself - Monino - made a depressing impression - it was very desolate, the roads were broken into the trash, the housing stock was ...

    Where can I send money?

    Here are my thoughts on the future of the museum.
    An offer to the site administration. In order to somehow support the museum, organize a fundraising among visitors to the site, and not one-time, but permanent. And to inform what was done on the donation. Enough of regrets and angry matches. It's time to do at least something.

    Good evening, dear Alexey!

    I fully support you, that it’s time to move on from words to words. Although with small STEPS, but to do, just words and appeals, to nothing. good

    Thanks for the report! I was there in 83. I was struck by unique exhibits, the unique people who worked there, the atmosphere of a certain semi-secret - in a word, it was very interesting.
    I am for fundraising. Historical values ​​should not be lost.

    Thank you very much to the one who did not take the trouble to lay out this reportage with photos for everyone's joy (and sadness)! I think everyone who (was) associated with Aviation remained under the influence of these wonderful Creations of human genius, by the hands of our craftsmen, created in the name of the triumph of our Motherland. A request to everyone who can create a public piggy bank to make sure that specific deeds are visible - on what the money we collected was spent. And I have no doubt that there will be people who are not indifferent. (at least, please, throw in a "PM", where to send the transfer). About myself, I served 70-72. - a mechanic of electrical equipment in the 2nd squadron of the 12th IAP (Guards Vitebsk, under whose auspices the "Normandie-Niemen" squadron was created). If you suddenly have fellow soldiers, respond!

    I looked with great pleasure. Feelings are twofold - it’s nice to see all these handsome planes and it’s sad to see those that are no longer in service, but in my time roared with engines pushing the earth away from themselves. But this is justifiable sadness ...

    Good day to all. Guys question to those who were in the museum. The museum's website says that the quote: "Foreign visitors, as well as persons entering
    the territory of the museum by car must obtain permission in advance.
    “Who will clarify the situation for me? I have a Ukrainian passport. I am going to Russia, I really want to get there.

      The museum is open from 9:30 to 15:00 on weekdays (lunch 13: 00-14: 00), except Wednesday, and from 9:30 to 14:00 on Saturday (without lunch break). The museum is closed on Sundays and Wednesdays. Since the museum is located on the territory of the military unit (Gagarin Air Force Academy), all visitors must pass the entrance gate to the military complex. As of the summer of 2006, special permission to visit is no longer required.

    it’s a shame for Zhukovsky’s academy ... until recently, as a cadet, I climbed IL76 on an internship ... and now everything is abandoned and nobody needs it.
