    PilotJedi goodies

    A photographer Marina takes a ride on a Russian military helicopter Mi-8 from Cubinka, 60 kilometers from Moscow and flying around. What she was able to see? Other military helicopters taking off and landing, rusty abandoned helicopters staying in the field, huts and houses, sawmills and hundred year old wooden structures, also the Victory Day infantry parade preparation and some more. All from above, all shot from the Mi-8 helicopter. Want to see it all? Then donít hesitate and proceed inside.

    Su-24 Jet flying around the Orenburg city. As Michael, the photographer, states it takes the plane speed of around 400 km/h for a take off – during this the land literary trembles because of the jet’s power, then it goes off to the air.

    So, ok, I know we had it just yesterday, but here is another flight around over the Moscow on the military helicopter. This time of the year, before the parade, it’s an unique chance to get a few peeks on Moscow from the places not normally available for flying. Also some helicopters.
