The grand opening of the MiG-29 monument will take place on October 28
The project plays a great role for the city, because Zhukovsky has been inextricably connected with aviation for many years. The opening of the monument will be a logical continuation of other projects - the Tu-144 monument in the Tupolev street and alleys of busts of the Russian general aircraft designers.
The ideological inspirer of the project is Andrey Sergeevich Dzyuba, Honored Designer of the Russian Federation and a native of the city. Andrey Sergeevich took part in many projects on the aircraft "Geophysics", "Buran", autogyro "Adel" and others, and is currently the Deputy General Director of NIK Ltd.
On the night of October 21 the aircraft was transported to the installation site, accompanied by police, past the Tu-144 monument and the city administration. And on Saturday the MiG-29SMT aircraft was lifted onto the pedestal. A new memorial was installed near the Bykovo cemetery and is dedicated to the test pilots.
The grand opening of the monument will take place on October 28 at 12-00. We invite everyone!
