This july I visited Ukraine. In kiev I had already planned to visit the second largest airport in Kiev, Zhulyany airport. I was not going to fly anywhere, as I had already used Borispil Airport for my arrival, but to visit the State Aviation Museum of Ukraine. One of my interests are airplanes, and im especially facinated by the old soviet portofolio of jets. Therefore, combining russian airplanes and photography, I knew I was set for a special one.
