Rumours of that were circulating for three years, and finally grim news came in...

How could this be allowed to happen?  What a tragedy ...

I wonder if I am being excessively cynical, or insufficiently cynical, to wonder if some Putin cronies will get some extra scratch by ramming this sort of thing through rather than taking the time to do it right.

Maybe we can put together a Kickstarter and buy ourselves a Sukhoi T-4 or a Myasischev M-50.

It's a national treasure of theirs - how disgusting. -SP
When you know you're right, go ahead.

They'd look great in Dayton or Ashland. Transport might be a challenge...

I'm a bit (but not much sadly) surprised that they seemingly haven't tried to save the Mil V-12.
The sole imperative of a government, once instituted, is to survive.

If this happens, it will be a national disgrace, and a tragedy for those interested in aerospace globally.
Some of those are unique airframes and designs. I'm completely baffled as to how this can actually even be considered in what is the worlds largest country in terms of area, with armed forces not exactly short of heavy lifting equipment.

Flateric, is their some kind of appeal or petition, even for those of us not Russian? I'm sure almost everyone on this forum would gladly sign it.

EDIT: I see Flaterics second post shows a petition. I urge members here to sign it, regardless of your nationality.

That picture of Flaterics really highlights the gargantuan size of the Mil V-12. It's massive.
How could anyone possibly even entertain scrapping that, the Bounder, and T-4??? :o

Signed; hopefully one of Putin's cronies realises at the 11th hour that there may be some money in proper preservation.

Recently, I have visited Monino Museum. I hope you enoy few pictures as eye candy.

At that day, fortunately, weather is clear.
