RA-86147 (cn 51483205043) Final parade rehearsal over capital of Russia. You can see two old Stalin's skyscrapers that were built in 1950es and between them new business center "Moscow city". Great contrast between past and present!

Fantastic picture, thanks for sharing!

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 7, 2011:
Amazing shot! It's nice that you got the aircraft and the architecture all in the same focus.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 3, 2011:
Is that a round vertical building in the background?

A visitor from India posted Thu December 23, 2010:
The aircraft & the architecture combination is just amazing !
Great work ! 5*

Great shot!

A visitor from - posted Tue June 8, 2010:
Colours... Such quiet somber colours. I like cloudy Moscow.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue May 18, 2010:
Without the military aircraft the sheer contrast in cityscapes provides a startling photo, with the military aircraft it's like a whole extra layer on the cake

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat May 15, 2010:

A visitor from Poland posted Sat May 15, 2010:
Yeah great photo :) I think it's nice showing the past and present. In Warsaw It's also that building like this one. It was a gift from Stalin. But it's aviation portal so nice catch of this Il-87 :)

A visitor from - posted Sat May 15, 2010:

A visitor from Canada posted Sat May 15, 2010:

"Past and Present" With a bit of both in between ;) Wonderful photo.

A visitor from - posted Fri May 14, 2010:
Beautiful photo and a difficult choice top make since you have to decide between an attractive scenario composition or a close up in the aircraft.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri May 14, 2010:
Great picture, such a contrasting sight. Sure Moscow deserves to be visited!

A visitor from - posted Fri May 14, 2010:
Very powerful

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 14, 2010:
Great picture! The contrast reminds me of the view of London from the top of the hill at Greenwich.
