Rep of Moldova, Marculesti AFB (Mig 29s)

Post by FredL »

Some evening news from Republic of Moldova, regarding the last 6 Mig-29s (which didn't fly for years) at Marculesti AFB : it looks like some smugglers managed to steal some components of those aircraft, made of precious metals (Platinium, etc). Even less chances to see them flying now I am afraid ...
But interstingly, the program shows some images of those rarely seen birds (looking not so bad) and inside a local shelter showing what looks to be Kamov helicopters (I also saw such choppers in Chisinau airport) :

This airport looks quite interesting anyway :
