Another reason for Mother Russia to increase their defense budget. At least get a few snow plows to get started.

Plowing costs money. I think they should spend some cash on new hangars.

Incredible shot. Shows the unforgiving environment the Russian Airforce operates in and the bravery of the men who operate out of such airfelds. 5 stars!

They don't need shovels. These are MiGs/SUs. They are all-weather and this means they can operate at any weather conditions. Hardly imagine Raptor taking off from such a site...

Nice pic, but it hardly looks like they're gonna operate - seeing as they're taxying towards each other...

Rare picture - seldom you see 17 Mig-29 in one picture. The two Fulcrums on the taxiway in top/middle of the picture are probably parked there - no tow trucks, no blast markings in the snow.

What a great capture. It's got a real Cold War feel to it. Just one question though, why would you leave such expensive hardware exposed to the harsh elements? Are the hangers full already?
