Moscow by day

What is there to say about Moscow? Capital of Russia, with population of over 11 million, 7th largest city in the world and the largest in Europe and with 79 billionares, the “wealthiest” city in the world. It is also one of the most expencive cities in the world (don’t be surprised to pay around 10eur for a small glass of beer in the center). City of big contrasts, rich history and really worth visiting – Moscow!

MAKS 2009, pt.1

MAKS – Moscow Aeronautical Cosmonautical Salon – is a biannual event held at Zhukovksy Air Base, just outside Moscow. Although by intent being similar to Farnborough or Le Bourget Salons, MAKS is different by offering the visitor an insight view of mainly the future of Russian aircraft development along with a flying display of most of the current and future aircraft and helicopters, along with some foreign guests. This year, they were Italian aerobatical group Frecce Tricolori, French group Patrouille France and French demo display Rafale.

The pictures show some of the Wednesdays flying display. I will be adding Thursdays display pics in the near future.
