Aviation Museum. Museum of Russian civil aviation.

 

    In the middle of 90, I met American David. A big fan of aviation, an amateur pilot himself, he then worked in St. Petersburg as a sales representative. And we crossed with him on the search for aircraft of the Second World War. When asked why he needed the remains of the aircraft, he replied that they collect these remains around the world and restore them, as far as possible, to the exhibition, and even to flight condition. This is a hobby of some Americans. He also said that almost every state in the United States has its own small, but air museum. And it does not focus on American technology. Interest is shown in engineering in general, in the development of aviation, outside politics and borders. He and his father restored about three cars (albeit American, but 30x) to fully flying state. And at that time they had 4 flying aircraft.

 At that time, Russia was actively destroying its aviation technology under the arms reduction agreements. It was bitter and insulting for the country, for the history, for the huge number of people, technicians, pilots, designers, engineers, workers who worked on the creation of unique aircraft and helicopters of the Fatherland. In the development of aviation, we have always been at the forefront, the first, so why are we so indifferent to our recent history? Why not pride in their achievements, why they are so indifferent to them?

Keeper of the museum and became V. Stoyanov. For years, he beats one with civil and military bureaucrats, for the right to receive one copy of a written-off in the museum's collection. Since the status of the City Museum is not received, then the rights have no museum.
