The State Aviation Museum. The State Aviation Museum of Ukraine was opened in autumn of 2003. Its exposition covers over 0.2 sq. km. More than 50 planes and helicopters are on display here. They were flown by the USSR and Ukrainian Air Forces or in civil aviation.
The collection contains Tu-22 “Backfire” strategic bombers, the world’s largest Mi-26 helicopter, the world’s fastest combat intelligence aircraft MiG-25, flying three times the speed of sound and the super-large wide-body Il-86 airbus.
Visitors may sit in the cockpits of jet airliners and combat helicopters to “handle” them and feel for themselves the thrill of being a pilot flying a transcontinental airliner or combat helicopter!
