Hi Lawrence,

Sad news for you - there are very few old jets left in VKO nowadays. You'll mostly meet B737 there.

Regards,

Fyodor

Hello Fyodor,

Yes I heard this sad news, and should be worse at the rest of two airports SVO and DME! That's why I will spend around five days there, hoping to get at least some before they are total invisible from the sky or just the display in museum  

Do you have any recommendation about the locations or other thing else for me   ? I know there is a platform on the pipeline oppositing the threshold of runway 20 is good for pic in the afternoon and I plan to stay there for long. Is that place safe?

Cheers,
Lawrence

Hi Lawrence,

I'd say you might get better chances to get old staff in DME. In VKO there is Government Squad with old staff but their schedule is rather unpredictable for the most of people. In my feeling there are more scheduled old staff in DME now.

As about safety generally situation is much better than years ago however you never insured from zealous security people which will decide you are suspicious. From this prospective VKO is more tough airport because of its President's and VIP status.

Regards,

Fyodor
