I-15 bis, I-153, Po-2, I-16, all flyable with pics and info on each.

They also have a Yak-55 championship aerobatic plane made in 1990. And a Storch, P40-E, and... well you look. Check out also they're working on a 109 but I'm hoping for a 190A with working Revi for some.. odd.. reason.

Yes,I've seen that site. They've got a number of very rare birds in their hangar. Very impressive....http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I'd like to visit them someday.

Incredible. I highly doubt that any of those are still flyable and in such condition in Russia. Hats of tho those who restore those planes.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.
