I love the colors - the snow, billowy clouds, and the cold apartment blocks, all of which compliment the airplane and the huge plinth. Beautifully composed and executed.

I can see this very monument almost every day. It's the only monument in Bryansk devoted to the pilots of the Great Patriotic War. As for the photo, it's a very beautiful view. I'm glad to see it!

A great picture of a truly inspiring monument, but I have to ask, why does it feature a MiG-17 if it's a monument to the Great Patriotic War? Or did I misunderstand? Thanks for sharing!

This is the Monument of Soviet Pilot's Battle Glory and it's devoted to all soviet/russian pilots, who defended their Motherland, not only during Great Patriotic War. The Monument was opened in 1975, in the year of 30th Anniversary of GPW Victory.

During WWII, the bomber regiment was based there in Bryansk, but after WWII the last division based on that air-base was the fighter regiment which fought in Korea.

It seems the plain belonged to that fighter regiment.
