Pics from Raketfest #15 / Skyfest 2012

Posted 09-11-2012 at 10:43 AM by SiberianTiger

The event was held last weekend, on Sept 8, 2012 at Bolshoye Gryzlovo airfield not far from Moscow. There was a lot of model and real aircraft, parachutes, paragliders, etc. Part of the event was model rocket launches, which I was involved into. Enjoy some pics here and watch my big photo report at http://tigerofsiberia.livejournal.com/109931.html

Last Sunday there was an air show in Zhukowski to mark the 100th anniversary of Russian Air Force. I have been there with my family, and I'm happy to show you some of the pictures I've taken there.

1st, there were many guests, like this dashing French on his Dassault Rafale:

Continuing in the second post because of picture number limit.

Best pics from my vacation (part 1)

I have recently returned from Crimea and brought some nice pictures with me. You are welcome to watch!

And, if you are wondering, for how long I'm going to keep my lazy butt away from spaceflight events tracking on the forum - yes, I'm so sorry about my negligence of it. But RL is too intrusive lately, I have done many promises I can't break to various people. If favorable winds blow, I will finish my global launch threads reference table to begin with.

And now, enjoy...

An obituary in Novosti Kosmonavtiki

Posted 05-18-2012 at 08:42 AM by SiberianTiger

For anyone who is interested, late Anna Gorelysheva, whose picture I recently made my signature pic, has received an obituary on her death from an editor of Novosti Kosmonavtiki magazine (few words about this magazine by an English reviewer).

The pdf version of this long article in Russian can be downloaded here.

That's a big deal not only for me.
