Our memory. Air Force Museum in Monino. Part of 1

12



We continue to acquaint readers with the memorable places of our stories. Our material is about the Museum of the Air Force in Monino.

The museum itself consists of several expositions. The first is in the museum itself. There are engines, weapons and communication models. The second - in the hangar near the museum. Soviet aircraft of the Great Patriotic War. The third is an open area where the main majority of the museum’s exhibits are located. And the fourth - a hangar with particularly valuable exhibits on the edge of the exhibition field.

In the first part of our narration, we will introduce you to the exhibits of the museum itself and the hangars. In the second - with an exhibition in the open.

Next we go to the hangar, which shows our winning aircraft. And the exhibition is good, albeit few, unfortunately, but there is a zest. These are guides. Not to tell about them separately is a crime. Unlike many museums, they are not middle-aged women of intelligent appearance and with a correctly delivered speech. Not.

These are two strong grandfathers with colonel manners. The fact that they did not spin the tails of the aircraft, it is clear at first glance. But on what flew - that is another question. Age obviously peers exhibits. Well, maybe a little younger. But strong.

On that day, when we were in the museum, three buses were brought there with pupils of elementary grades in accordance with the presidential program of patriotic education. So we also watched the program in action. How these guides were holding a herd of schoolchildren in their hands, it's nice to see.

And, by the way, their speech was not memorized, like that of ordinary museum workers. These were the stories of people who understood what they were talking about, and most importantly, they sincerely adored the subject of their story. Unforgettable impressions of how they speak.

And Roman Junior miraculously dodged a duralumin pointer, which one of the guides didn’t stretch it along his back. In order not clever and not confused under their feet.

And the final part of our today's excursion is the hangar of especially valuable exhibits. There are a lot of exhibits in it, only a little space. But we tried to hook the most, in our opinion, interesting.


ANT-2. The first Soviet all-metal aircraft. Yes, and passenger

Scout "Voisin"


Experimental discovery. I asked the caretaker if this thing was flying? And he replied that everything flew here. The only question is how

    I managed to visit last year and walk around all the exhibits and venues. It is unrealistic to consider in detail in one day, but there is something to see. Unfortunately, it was not possible to board the Tu-144, there was a long line.

    Museum instructors are aerobatics. At one time, I was able to inspect unique exhibits under the guidance of Hero of the Soviet Union A.V. Anokhin. I hope to continue the photo essay from the museum. Thanks to the authors!

    "Ilya Muromets". Looking at the year of construction, you quietly go crazy

    But is it not the “eraplan” that was built for the filming of the film “Poem on the Wings”? Doubt bar that any "artifact" from the time of the Civil War "reached" to the present day ...
    Here is a link to the site that the mentioned tours are held: http://tolkslovar.ru/a6070.html
    there is a specific link: http://www.stranatur.ru/ru/Incoming-tours/Excursions/
    but something didn’t work.

      In Monino there are two types of exhibits - there are genuine copies, there are so-called "technological copies" - aircraft built in our time, but using only those materials and technologies that existed at the time of construction. I can’t say anything about Ilya Muromets, but the Sopvich triplane is definitely genuine.
