    Fantastic series of photos! I’m a big fan of forgotten places, especially military ones, and it’s a bonus when there’s still redundant aircraft littering abandoned airfields.

    Amazing photos. There is no country I am more exited about visiting than Russia. I hope the looters don’t destroy too much of the abandoned military hardware before I visit.
