Personally I wouldn't' bring a scanner.. It'll be a useful as a paperweight as the comms will mostly be in Russian unless they have a Foreign visiting team. Plus in all reality.. I'm not even sure if a scanner is allowed in Russia. I did not see a single scanner being used at all in 2017. I left mine in the UK after RIAT last time, I don't fancy a Russian jail cell so didn't take the chance.


Fair enough. I'll leave it at home then.

I did a little searching and based on an older reference it was legal to own a scanner in Russia, but you may or may not require a permit to actually operate it. Regardless, especially coming from North America I won't chance it.

Excellent thanks...hadn't seen it before.

Was still hoping for a more complete performer listing, but I guess we'll see what takes off.

It's annoying as it makes it hard to know whether to shell out for the media platform or not. One or two star items would make it a no brainer, but it could also not be worth the money when you could just go to the bank.

I'm pretty sure in 2017 you only knew what was displaying the day before too.

I'm on the platform for the Friday, though I will concede it's a luxury and could end up being a massive waste of money! Hopefully it will be worth it just for the take-off shots....

wow that's bad. I get:

https://www.aviasalon.com/ru/news/histo ... -maks-2019

August 4th - Historic aircraft will be presented at MAKS 2019

The exposition of historical aircraft, which will unfold at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019, will include eight aircraft. It is expected that three of them will take part in the demonstration flight program.

As in previous years, on the MAKS-2019 static parking lot it will be possible to see the world's first supersonic passenger liner Tu-144, a plane with a Tu-155 hydrogen engine and a Burana carrier BM-T Atlant. Also, visitors to the air show will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the Soviet I-15bis, I-153 Chaika, MiG-3, MiG-15 fighters and the Il-2 attack aircraft.

Fans of Soviet aircraft, who arrived at the MAKS-2019, are waiting for a pleasant surprise. The head of the project “Winged memory of Victory” Boris Osetinsky confirmed that the IL-2 aircraft can be seen not only on the ground, but also in the sky. According to him, the aircraft is fully ready to participate in the MAKS-2019 flight program. In addition, the MiG-3 and MiG-15 planes are announced in the demonstration flight program.

Great to see some of the vintage Russian warbirds (even if some are repro's), the MiG-3 and Il-2 are great flying additions for warbird enthusiasts like myself. :smile:

Just in case anyone is thinking about something a bit different I came a cross this ….

https://www.russiaeguide.com/maks-air-show.html

Looks quite pricey but you do get ...
The price includes:
– Bus Transfer to the pier (round trip)
– [b]Breakfast (fried eggs with sausages, tea or coffee, dessert)
– Entrance fees to the MAKS exhibition

I know Ian Allan and others do this but not seen it for individual booking before . Probably cos I haven't looked !

The Su 57 in the statcic should be great. Wonder how close you'll be able to get ?? . I'm hoping, along with all on here no doubt ,for some Chinese participation but nothing on the horizon yet.

I reckon you'll get close, but there's normally a lot of background clutter which doesn't help for photography, still it'll be nice to see it up close. With the Chinese participating in the Army Games recently you'd hope we would get to see a few items from them!

Fingers crossed for something like that again, maybe a MiG-35 this time.... :whistle:

I've never been an aluminum tube guy, but I have always wanted to see one of those near vertical airliner takeoffs...so I'm actually pretty excited about this.

From the Aviationist:
The Mi-28NE and Ka-52 gunship helicopters will be on display at MAKS, along with the proven and continually updated Mi-17 series. This year the latest Mi-17Sh and Mi-17V-5 updated helicopters will be on display.

In addition to unique helicopter updates and the sure to be sensational Su-57 display, MAKS 2019 will showcase the Ilyushin Il-112V light tactical military transport, the Sukhoi Su-35S and Su-30SM multi-role super-maneuverable tactical aircraft and the light, Yak-130 trainer and counter-insurgency aircraft.

I like the idea of the media platform but having seen a picture it looks a bit small. Wondering if it gets crowded and ends up in the Russian equivalent of a bun fight?

Would all the static be in place on the Thursday? And would you be allowed to cruise through it? Might be a better choice due to the limited airshow than the Sunday for doing statics.
