I was not keen on the planned Saturday on this tour. If I am going to MAKS I want to maximise the MAKS days for weather - imagine if it was raining on Friday and Sunday and on Sat you are sitting in a museum or a free afternoon in the sun. If you have had your fill by Fri and Sat do the museum and free day on Sunday...

They are Russians - no time or any time, three or four months or three weeks or two weeks or ten minutes before....!

Hotel now booked just waiting for the paperwork so I can start the long haul of Visa applications. At least for these Visas it’s only the 2 of us going, last years SPB visit I completed 5 separate applications. Day out in the big smoke to present the paperwork then start sorting out places / museums to visit along with 2 days at MAKS

I'm using a visa service that takes care of the invitation letter and everything...

my only holdup at this point is making sure my work approves the time off, then I'll go about changing the flights and making it happen.

Does anyone have a video footage from the south of the airfield, in the town called Vertyachevo???

I'm just curious how it looks from there. Is is possible to see the aircraft taking off??

There are quite a few videos taken from the riverbank - YouTube is your friend.

No, you can't see the runway from the riverbank, it's obscured by the opposite bank itself and trees etc. Doesn't really matter, because as soon as the aircraft are airborne they make a sharp turn and are immediately over your head.
Posting comments on an aviation-related chatroom, are ya? Looks like it an' all...

I've been going through Youtube for a while but all I could find were the vids from either inside the airshow or from right next to the tower.

It's quite a relief to hear that the aircraft will be flying over the head. Thanks for the heads up.

I should book whatever the hotel that's near the airport and just get a taxi to get to the village
