Another magnificent MAKS Aviation and Space Show took place in Zhukovskiy near Moscow from August 25 to August 30, 2015. This time our awesome aircraft Ilyusha (IL-76 MDK) took place in the show and literally became one of the exhibition centers.
For your information: IL-76 MDK flying laboratory was designed for zero-gravity flights necessary in the course of cosmonauts’ preflight trainings.
While Ilyusha was shinning in the flashlights GCTC specialists told the visitors about this unique zero-gravity training experience.
Wanna see Ilyusha in operation? Welcome onboard! Join our next zero-gravity flight! The date coming soon.
