Re: 04jun2015: Sukhoi Su-34 bomber overturned off runway

And why would they risk a war against a major part of the rest of the world? What would they gain by doing so? Neither party would benefit from such a situation.

Re: EU/Latin America summit 10/11 June 2015

A just saw right now such a Falcon coming to land at Brussels.
From pictures on the net, I think this may be the Bolivian one (tail colors). But from the distance, I can't be 100 % sure.

Rep of Moldova, Marculesti AFB (Mig 29s)

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 .....

Dnepropetrovsk airport, Ukraine (CIV and GOV)

Some pictures from this airport, ex-soviet era air base (some shelters were still present at both ends of the main runway, but no more military there. On the road to the airport main gate, a nice looking Mig-19 was exposed (I didn't have the possibility to get close enough to make a picture). Those ...

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

Waiting for departure from Moldova yesterday, I had the opportunity to catch a few interesting old style, soviet era transports.
