Re: Farnborough International Airshow 2018

Apologies if it’s already been mentioned but as far as I can make out there is an Antonov An 124 Ruslan set out by the Qatar 747 8F and 747-800.

Wings of Russia Studio

During this years visit to MAKS I noticed that there were no stands or outlets selling Wings of Russia DVD's etc. At previous MAKS they had a big stand themselves set up outside the Cafe hall. Does anyone know if they're still in business or did anyone see their stand at MAKS ? The WoR Studio websit...

Re: MAKS 2017

Slightly off topic but as I'm in Moscow for a week I thought I would try to make a visit to Patriot Park at Kubinka. Has anyone on the forum ever visited this Museum and how did you go about getting there as I've not seen it advertised as a part of any Tour itinerary.
Thanks in advance for any help.
