Monino (Central Air Force Museum) – Thursday 24th August 2017 (John Tomlinson)

This museum was one of the highlights on the itinerary that I was looking forward to visit on this trip.

I had visited Moscow and St. Petersburg back in 1997 for a purely tourist holiday and ever since then I had wanted to return to Moscow and visit this well documented Museum based at Monino.

So at last after 20 years I have made the journey to the Central Russian Air Force Museum. Despite the large amount of aircraft here, it is a rather compact area, making it easy to get around.

Many outside photographs have been duplicated deliberately, as the light conditions continued to change during our visit. First it was dull, then the sun came out, it rained a short while and the sun came out again……………However whatever the weather, it is still a fantastic collection of both old and new, transport, bombers and fighter aircraft.
