If you enjoyed movies like Top Gun or similar movies this is like a dream coming true. You can actually walk among soviet fighter jets and helicopters. All from giant helicopters with rotors over 100feet in diameter to planes that can pull over 8G or exceed Mach 2! If the owner is in a good mood you can even be allowed to go inside the biggest helicopter and sit with the stick and pretend that you are flying.
Not surprisingly there are only soviet here , but hey.. The MIGs where and are the fastest fighter jet in the world.
Maybe the planes could do Mach 2 when they where flying, but they certainly will not do that today. Some of the planes has been stripped for all vital parts except the shell, and at least one of the helicopters where being used for storage of different kinds of things (old clothes and 17 inch computer screen are among some of the things).
So really its a junkyard , but its the best junkyard I've ever been to!
