Rusty Russian Jet Fighters’ Days Are Over

If you are into old jet fighters, especially the old Soviet ones you will be amazed by the fact that there is a big field near Moscow that holds several of them. Of course they’re not in use any more, but they still look powerful. As you may notice some of their parts are missing, especially the nose cones. People actually come and take them to keep them as souvenirs.

Other parts are also “stolen” from the jet fighters. It’s funny what people tend to collect, but you never know when you’re going to need a jet fighter engine, right? You can see how it looks inside as well in this selection of photos. Notice the instructions written in Russian.

All in all the jet fighters are still standing there proud with their red stars on the wings. The same thing has happened to loads of huge ships that have been abandoned in Russia.
