A sad view. Airport Bykovo was closed in November this year, you can see almost empty apron, separated by newly build metallic fence over it, and an empty dark terminal building. Just now no any motion there, everything seems abandoned. But I hope some day we'll see here flying aircrafts again

Do I see drums (?!) on top of the port wing of the blue AN-74, or are my eyes just fooling me?

Thanks, Anton. I was wondering how UUBB now looked.
I knew it would be bad - and still feel sad.
Let's hope there will be need in the 4th Moscow airport OR activities of UAC in Zhukovsky will make that place as well-know as Pine Field.

A desolate sight, but it captures the bitter Russian winter very well. I can feel the cold! As for the blue Antonov - you can see she is up on jacks. Perhaps the port engine is being changed out, and the drum/tube replaces the missing mass and therefore maintains the balance? At least she's in better shape than her red partner... Her starboard engine sits under a snow-covered tarp. I like the paint scheme on the Colt!
