    This is a cool off the path spot: as I know, seems difficult to visit it!

For all amateurs of aircrafts, an impressive collection of Sovietic planes, helicopters and fighters.

My experience, Explo description: 

The museum has been developped for more than 50 years, gathering now about 40 aircrafts!

For sure, don't miss the impressive Tu-22M1 - 'Backfire' bomber. This is a supersonic long-range strategic bomber.

Have a look at the Mi-6 helicopter ("Hook" for Nato). It was developed in 1957. It was for long time the largest helicopter, and also the fastest with a speed of 300 km/h.

My personal recommendations: 

The museum can be visited on weekdays from 9 am to 6 pm, saturday and sunday on demand. If you have 1 hour before your flight, do not hesitate to visit it!

Unfortunately, the museum is very unknown and lacks of founds: collection is in a bad shape. You must insist to visit it, particularly if you ga at the airport desk to ask for a visit!

The staff is friendly. Give a call before getting there.

How getting there: 

The museum is 200m from the Airport Hall Entry and main carpark.
