When you look at the planes from the ground, they are just like small birds floating across the sky. But when you take a closer look, you will feel that they are gigantic and strong animals. You can feel the power of these iron birds if you get to Sheremetyevo Airport and park under the line of landing!
At first, you will see the fires through the forest and then, in several minutes, the shapes of a plane. It will be moving on you faster and faster! This enormous machine will fly almost above your head with much noise. You will have a feeling that it can touch you, but it will never happen, of course.
The planes are landing very often, so you will not have to wait long to see them.
Getting there: you should go straight by Leningradskiy Highway from Moscow Ring Road in the direction to Moscow region, then turn according to the road sign Sheremetyevo-1 and it will take 8,5 km to get to the place from this point. As a reference point you can use the red landing fires at the right side of you.
