This spaceframe, built in 1984, was used for landing tests. First flight Nov. 10, 1985. It was equipped with four AL-31 jet engines, two of them are still visible on this photo. After performing 24 flights, 18 of them fully automated it was stored at Zhukovski from 1988 till 1999. In 2000 & 2001 this shuttle was on display at Sydney, before it was brought to Bahrain. Now this Buran is on its way to the Technik Museum Spyer. Seen here on river Rhein (km 765,7) at Krefeld Urdingen in late evening sun.
