On the occasion of City Day, the Cosmonautics and Aviation Center at VDNKh opens a permanent exposition “Aviation. Dreams of flying,” said Deputy Mayor of Moscow Natalia Sergunina.
“The exhibition is dedicated to the history of aviation development. Its main feature is interactivity. With the help of the simulator, visitors will be able to *control* the aircraft, and the kinetic installation will show the principle of operation of the wings of aircraft. In addition, guests will see models of Soviet and Russian developments. Some of *them* have been created for more than two years,” said Natalia Sergunina.
The exhibition will open *on September 10th*. The exhibition will feature more than 90 models of domestic aircraft and multimedia objects. Among the models are the Po-2 biplane, which was put into production in 1927, the Soviet supersonic airliner Tu-144, the world’s largest turboprop transport aircraft An-22, as well as the first domestic Tu-104 passenger jet aircraft, the Be- 200, Ka-62 helicopter and others. The exhibition will tell you how the first parachutes, balloons, flywheels and gliders were created, what technologies were used before, and what engineers use today.
Everyone will be able to make an interactive flight over VDNKh, study a demonstration model of the cockpit of the Russian MS-21 airliner, and a special program will even allow you to design your own aircraft.
You can visit the exposition during the opening hours of the Cosmonautics and Aviation Center – from Tuesday to Sunday, from 11:00 to 22:00.
The events of various Moscow projects related to education, leisure, sports, healthcare, and landscaping are united by the Moscow program “My District”. Its goal is the systematic and harmonious development of all districts of the city, regardless of their distance from the center.
