"MAKS" Outside Moscow Tip by Lalique

Outside Moscow, Moscow: 17 reviews and 26 photos

 
 

MAKS (International Aviation & Space Salon)

This event is actually a 'MUST see' thing but as it's held in town Zhukovski, which is about 30km to the South-West of Moscow, I decided to put it in 'Off beaten' section.

This Salon (similar to the one held in Le Bourget, France) is really famous world-wide among aicraft professionals, and we, Moscovites, like it for its spectacular air shows, performed by Russian pilots.

Unfortunately this Salon is held only once in 2 years, the latest one was on August 19-24, 2003. I highly recommend you to visit it, if you happen to be in Moscow on these dates.

More detailed info you can find at http://www.airshow.ru/etable.htm or

Have a look at my Zhukovskiy page to see what was going on there this August.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
