Glad you still remember me I was actually very pre-occupied running a Russian aviation portal,
and a few other projects, just checking in every now and then when I have fun stuff to share.


Blue skies!

And with the tail number readable on the panel! Does Mother Russia
have an FAA equivalent?

How are things with General Aviation in Russia nowadays? I heard there are
still no laws governing it, and only a privileged few can fly. The skies
still belong to the miliatary, an old Communist legacy.

Pretty much that's the truth. And guys like these don't help the situation either. I mean it's fun to watch (I have a video), but I still think this was extremely irresponsible of them.

It looks like the altimeter is indicating slightly below zero -- what? --
meters?. I thought Moscow was around 200 meters. Did they set it to zero on
the ground, perhaps?

Yes, they set it to zero on the ground (QFE), just like everywhere else in Europe.
And also don't forget that aneroid altimeters have a certain margin of error,
especially when it's cold or warm. (I totally forgot what's the legal allowance is,
I think it's 25')
