Victory Day Parade 2015 - Moscow

Postby KoenH on Mon 11 May 2015, 8:21 pm

On the 9th of May, the Russian Armed Forces held their biggest Victory Day Parade ever. 15000 troops, 150+ vehicles and 143 aircraft participated in the celebration of the total surrender of Nazi-Germany.
A very impressive Parade is staged on Moscows' Red Square, with the following photos taken along the bank of the Moskwa River and on top of a hotel underneath the flightpath while enjoying a nice champagne breakfast.

14. The actual day of the Parade, 9 May started with a nice champagne breakfast on a hotel roof before the parade started. The view from the roof was very much underneath the flightpath, but the head-on view was impressive

15. The sky was a little hazy/smoggy unfortunately
