Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Kishinev airport, Rep. of Moldova 15-04-15 (Civ -Government)

Post by FredL »

Waiting for departure from Moldova yesterday, I had the opportunity to catch a few interesting old style, soviet era transports.
Currently, there is a temporary free cars parking very well located to make pictures of the here-under AN-24's, an AN-12 (wrecked) and the IL-18d (this ones looks pretty nice and clean. But I don't think that it flies as it is parked at the same place for years). I also saw the remains of wings laying on the ground (maybe from an AN-24 - one of them crashed here a few years ago).
For the rest, planes are only visible from the tarmac, while going from the terminal to the plane (always by bus shuttle at Kishinev).

One AN-72 which looked in fair condition was parked next to the Il-18d (hidden by this one), but no pictures possible from outside the airport.

I also saw helicopters :

- 5 Mil Mi-8, looking in good and flyable condition, 4 of them painted in white, the 5th one blue and white, but all of them quite far from the airliners parking (visible nr. were ER-MGM, ER-MHY, ER-MG?, blue and white was ER-M?N),
- 2 Mil Mi-2, also looking good and flying (civil securtiy), painted orange and blue (too far and badly positionned for pictures).

For the rest some AN-24s in bad conditions, many beautifull Tu-134s (most of them wrecked or looking to be out of service with maybe one or two exceptions), one Yak-40 ("Moldova" and moldovan flag) and at least one wrecked Il-18. I'll open a subject under "wreckage" topics about them.

I didn't manage to put the wrecks or unflyable birds pictures in the appropriate subject, so decided to post them also here.
Most of them Tu-134.
