Moscow Zhukovsky, 12/08/2012

For my vacation I went a few days to Moscow with the Aeroprints aviation tour agency.

09AUG Domodedovo (includes airside)
10AUG Sheremetyevo (includes airside)
10AUG Vnukovo (includes VARZ400)
11AUG Monino
11AUG Chernoye
11AUG Khodynka
12AUG Zhukovsky
13AUG Saint Petersburg - Pulkovo
13AUG general aviation around Saint Petersburg
14AUG general aviation around Saint Petersburg

 

The main reason for the Moscow vacation was the air show the Russian Air Force held in honour of their 100th birthday. The air display was very impressive, but because it faced the sun it was also very poor for photography.

The main parking for the air show was at Bykovo., so our first shot of the day was the dump yard at Bykovo airport.

Seen from inside the shuttle bus going from Bykovo to Zhukovsky. Note the left wheel missing.

A few hours before the airshow started this Bear flew over for weather reconnaissance. It's one of only two photos I've got from flying planes that are not backlit.

Zhukovsky is littered with dumped aircraft all over the place.

This one also took part of the flight display.

Seen taxiing to its stand.

The first plane of the static line-up. It's a Polikarkov Po-2 LNB.

Several Tu-204s are stored here. Getting a clean shot was next to impossible.

There are also two Tu-144 "Concordski". Again photography was not really made easy.

And now a few shots from the flight display. The Russians made sure everyone knew this was their 100th birthday party! A nice and tight formation of 5 Su-27s, 8 Su-25s and 8 MiG-29s.

Prior to its display the Flying Bulls where kind enough to rev their engines a bit. Dust spots be damned (yes, I've got a 100-400L), I had to take a few photos till I got the prop blur right!
 

Without a doubt the winner of the best noise of the day competition!

Here's the second photo I made that was not backlit. I have never seen such a tight formation before, and I've seen most European, North American and Middle Eastern display teams.

The latest and greatest toy in the Russian air force´s arsenal.




I don't remember where in the program the Finnish Hawks and the Red Arrows flew, so I placed them in the log under the flightline south. Same goes for the historic planes that flew in the morning, I placed them under flightline north. For the rest all planes are sorted by location and alfabetically, except for the offical static display line which has been sorted in the same order they where parked.
