Planes and Choppers
No: 18270   Contributor: Lee Brown   Year: 2003   Manufacturer: Tupolev   Country: Russia

Pulkovo Tupolev 154M RA85171 of the Russian airline Pulkovo, photographed through a button hole of my coat at St Petersburg in March 2003. Pulkovo was founded in 1932 and became the 3rd largest airline in Russia. It was state owned and in 2006 it merged with another state owned airline, Federal State Unified Aviation Service to form Russiya.

2003 was the third year that BAES took a group of aircraft enthusiasts, festooned with cameras, to vist most of Moscow's airports quite openly, so a "spy shot" like this was totally unnecessary!
I went myself in 2009 and access was only slightly restricted, even on military bases

Thanks for that Peter, now perhaps you could contact the steward who told me otherwise.
