On Wednesday morning (26 August) everybody was packed and ready after breakfast in time to start the day. The interpreter and bus were there pretty fast as well and we head for the museum in Monino. The air show at Zhukovsky/MAKS would not start until later in the afternoon today and the resulted in the perfect opportunity to visit the impressive museum in Monino. The sun was shining brightly and everybody enjoyed the dozens of aircraft that are preserved here for a couple of hours. Early in the afternoon the bus took us to Zhukovsky. Today we did not want to go on the base, but head for a spot south of the fence. That would mean that we would not be facing the sun. We were able to park our bus relatively close by and could walk to the desired spot, enjoying the sunshine. If was a little bit disappointing that not many things flew. But, whatever did fly (choppers, Yak-130, Navy Su-30SM, MiG-35, etc.) was very nice and could be captured perfectly. At the spot where we were you are close to the display land and the display are practically flown in a circle around you! At the end of the afternoon we drove back to the hotel (which went surprisingly fast).
