  • What looks like a simple monument, has a great meaning. The city of Zhukovsky is endowed with a military air force base of primary importance, not so many years ago, even secret. In this "base" were and are tried and tested the best Russian aircraft and base are trained the best Russian Top-Gun many of which award graduates and have several patents including the astronaut. I had the great privilege of being hosted in this technological base where I was able to visit many training and testing departments and most importantly I could drive the famous "Albatros" which is the L-39 the mythical plane interceptor built entirely in titanium alloy and is still in force at best aerobatic teams in the world. Would give me enormous pleasure to return to visit this again and maybe air force base fly. I will do everything to try this beautiful and unique emotion. Vannja

  • Look at this aircraft and the pride takes over our pilots! Located in the heart of the city. Personifies the city of Zhukovsky-naukograd. One look is enough:) To be photographed with him is problematic, too too high:)

  • The MiG-21 was drawn up in the main street of the city of Zhukovsky, gagarina str., near the FALT of MIPT. Backbone enterprises of Zhukovsky are inextricably linked with aviation, flight tests in airshows are held every two years, MAX. You will see a fighter, approaching the city center from Moscow, at a busy intersection. Parking for private vehicles, there is a little further, on Lenin square. Public transport can be reached from Bedford buses 424 and 478 to stop "Institute".
