Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Tupolev ANT-6

Tupolev ANT-6 is the manufacturer name but the single buyer, the Soviet Air Force named it TB-3. In 1940, the type was in a process of retirement (despite still playing a main role in July 1941 !). Airframes were actually converted to passenger and cargo transport for Aeroflot and rename as Tupolev G-2. This only sight with such a blurred shape couldn't help to say exactly which variant.

Wallpaper inside the airport terminal with what seems a Douglas DC-3 or a Lisunov Li-2 with a map of air routes.

BUDNI 18.jpg


Airport of Kiev-Brovary which was the place where Istrebiteli was filmed the previous year. German army offensive totally destroyed it in 1941 and after the war, a new place was held for the next airport.
Just before the touch down of the Laville PS-89 in front of some Polikarpov U-2s and other passenger aircraft.

Another outstanding place (despite still unidentified). Seen during the paradropping demo at the airshow.

Seems closest to the Cierva C.30 than any Soviet indigenous design.
