Have you every wanted to see a MiG-28 do a 4G negative dive?
Well, you can’t because MiG 28′s don’t exist. However, the State Air Museum of Ukraine does and it is paradise for Top Gun movie fans, plane enthusiasts, and everyone else in Kiev with some time to kill.
The museum is actually located on the same airfield as Kiev’s Zhulanay airport in the south East of the city (see map below) but you’ll need to find the museum entrance because its different from the main airport. The address is: 1, Medova street, Kiev, Ukraine, 03048,
What’s there? well, lots of planes, helicopters and missiles.
Ukraine today may not be wealthy, but this country has a rich history of military innovation and the USSR built some amazing flying machines. This is the place to see them.
The museum is all outdoors, so choose a nice day to visit (or take your hat and gloves) and if you plan to stay for along time take some food and drinks because I didn’t see anywhere there to buy any.
Oh, and this day trip wont break the bank because it cost about 10UAH – that’s about 1 Euro.
