Hey vintage plane lovers. The legendary Air Events, who brought us the Iranair 747SP and the Syrianair 727, have chartered a Lisunov Li-2 for an enthusiasts charter in Budapest on Saturday 13 May. It's going to be completely awesome, and I'm posting it here cos places on this small aircraft are very limited and I want to see the seats go to my friends here on a.net.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more info.
I believe this is the actual aircraft we'll be flying on:

Quoting StarGoldLHR (Reply 2): I assume you mean flight worthy, theres at least 6 at Monino Airforce base in Moscow.
Sure that's what he meant.
I'd be surprised if there were six Li-2s in Monino though - surely there was only one in the museum display area last year. Also, Monino is hardly in Moscow.
I did see a Li-2 at Victory Park in Moscow, and another in Cracow, Poland.
