I've been looking for the name of an airport near Leonikha and southeast of Shchelkovo along the A-103. It appears to have many derelict planes parked all over the place. It is east of Moscow itself.

That is the name of the nearby train station, so I guess my answer is yes. Thanks: Google Earth is the most detailed map I can find and it does not label that airport.

Thanks for the photos and the links. In May my AA flight from ORD passed over the base on our approach to DME. All the planes lining the taxiways certainly peeked my interest.

It sounds amazing! I'm going to have to take a trip there next time I'm in Moscow.
