August 18


Our first stop of the days was Vnukovo airport. A ramp tour was cancelled so we stopped along location motorway M3 to photograph incoming aircraft using runway 01. From this position (and from the pedestrian bridge over the motorway) also a part of the ramp can be seen. We stayed for a few hours before leaving for our next stop.

The second half of the day we stayed at Domodedovo. Another part of the group did a ramp tour which we would do two days later. We went to location a spot at the end of the parking area next to runway 14L. After a few hours we got into troubles with airport security and we had to leave the area. Unfortunately we didn’t have our photo permits yet, so we complied.

Today we visited the MAKS airshow at location Zhukovsky.

As Zhukovsky is Russia’s main test base, lots of interesting aircraft can be found on the back lots of the massive airfield. All the Russian aircraft builders have maintenance areas as well.
