Before setting off to Kubinka, I photographed this monument to Nikolai Gastello near our hotel.
The tower is the oldest fire station in Moscow - contrasting with MacDonalds and our Holiday Inn in Sokolniki.
On the roadside near Kubinka, we stopped to photograph this MiG-21F monument.

... and typical Soviet-era mural on the wall opposite.

Some new arrivals at Zadorozhni - all ex-Khodynka airframes. This is a MiG-17
This unpainted Yak-38M looks like it came straight out the factory.
Another Yak-38 - this time an early variant from the Yakovlev museum.
Another ex-Yakovlev machine - the Yak-141.
Hawker Hurricane - now in Soviet markings.
