Zhukovsky Air Base

Monday morning September 19, 2005 at Zhukovsky Air Base about 50 Km outside of Moscow. Zhukovsky is a former, very secret base that is now open to adventure tourists like me looking for something different. This picture was taken just outside the building where I would have my medical exam, be fitted in a flight suit, briefed on the flight and given instructions concerning the helmet, oxygen and assorted other things that only barely registered at the time.

Lucky dog...

Just curious.

If someone wanted a duplicate ride like yours, how much would it ding the ole' bank account?

Go to http://www.incredible-adventures.com/ for the details but the short answer is around $17K for everything.

Not cheap but worth it in comparison to a lot of other things I have wasted money on over the years.
