Quite a bit has changed since my visit to Monino two years ago.

Several planes have been added to the collection. All of them used to be part of the Gagarin Academy at the other side of the airport bordering Monino. For instance an IL-76, a Tu-22M (there are now two) and various fighter jets. Most of the fighter jets are incomplete though. Just outside the museum there is a Tu-95 that can be clearly seen from the museum grounds, but not from outside the museum.

Along with the new planes, a lot of planes look like new! Several of the exhibits have been repainted. During our visit two planes where being repainted (Mil V-12, Mil Mi-6) and several other planes were seen with the cockpit windows taped up, presumably in preparation for painting.

The lobby and the indoor artefact area is also new. It's a nice and modern fascility now, a far cry from the tiny and messy "soviet-chic" old building.



The well known Mil V-12 prototype is one of the exhibits that was being repainted. The colours have changed from blue & white to green & white. The colours are a bit too bright to be historically accurate, but it does look nice.


Another repainted jet. The prototype T-10-1, better known as the Sukhoi Su-27.


Several new small Yak proprs have been added to the collection, including the next few.


Note how some of the cockpit windows have been taped up both on the Su-15 (front) and Su-11 (back).


Note the Su-27 in front of the An-22. It's a new addition coming from the Gagarin Academy.


Another new paint job. It's quite different from two years ago.


Another Gagarin Academy reject. Note the concrete blocks on the back weighing it down. There are now two Tu-22Ms.


And another Gagarin Academy gift. It's more interesting then you would think. This one is equiped with bomb racks under both wings!


Just outside the museum you can see this Tu-95 "Bear".


All helicopters have been repainted, except for the Mi-6 "Harke" which was in the process of repainting.


Most of the helicopters have received a (slightly) modified livery. Including this flying fire engine.
