I've recently decided to go on a visit to Frunze Central Aerodrome at Khodynka Field built by N. E. Zhukovsky. It was the first and the only aerodrome in Moscow until 1941. May 9, 1945 is a memorable day in the history of the aerodrome: early in the morning a plane landed there carrying the German Instrument of Surrender that established the armistice ending World War II in Europe. The aerodrome is no longer active and Khodynka Field is a big residential area with an ice ring. Initially, it was planned to build a museum there, which would reflect the history of Russian aviation, but it never happened.
Here you can see the following aircraft models: E155M (E266M) interceptor; MiG-25PU combat training aircraft; La17-R unmanned reconnaissance aerial vehicle.
