      No, I agree. Well, what is the Moscow Aviation and Space Salon in Kiev? It’s just KVA-1913, Military Airplane Competition.

    Many thanks to the author of the publication. good

    The value of such photo documents is to show the real life of that era when a person began to master the sky. With all the static shots, thousands of details emphasize and tell the descendants what life was like then.
    Generals and aristocrats - posing, priests - sprinkle, and flocks heed, hardening at attention. Artisans - they are in the background, they are not participants in the action, they service the equipment, they always lack time and almost do not notice anything around except their work. The take-off is clearly dual-purpose, yesterday - pasture, today - runway.
    And my God, you are my - how unlike these real undersized people in baggy uniforms to those noteworthy handsome men from movie series, both ours and Hollywood. I just see the photographer will roll up the dark cloth, fold the legs of the camera tripod, say: "... thank you, gentlemen ...!", The adjutant of "their excellency" will shout: "... Cab driver !!!" and the general will drive off to the restaurant for lunch and leisurely discuss this new business - aviation. And ahead - 1914, and there is not far from 1939 ...
    How weak man is in his foresight .......

    Salon is in Kiev?

    Salon in St. Petersburg, in my opinion there is still a platform "Korpusnoy airfield" if you go from the Vitebsk railway station, although ... let the Petersburgers fix it.
    But Sikorsky, of course, is a Kievite.
