In June 2018, and August 2019, I had the opportunity to visit the amazing Central Air Force Museum in Monino, near Moscow. I want to share views of the unique aircraft on display there, and maybe inspire others to travel there themselves! I’m still in the process of organising and processing the photos I took, but am gradually uploading them to the pages here. Keep checking back to see the updates!
The Central Air Force Museum (Центральный музей Военно-воздушных сил РФ) is the world’s largest museum for Soviet aircraft, with around 170 on display. It is located in Monino, Moscow Oblast, Russia, on the site of the former Monino Airfield, about 40 kilometres east of Moscow.
Entry fee is under AU$10 per person. And there can be guides offering their services.
Many of the signs are also in English, and for the ones that aren’t, the Google Translate app does OK!
Expect to spend a good hour and a half here… more if you’re really interested in aircraft: it is full of unique aircraft that you can’t find anywhere else.
