Another L-39 jet-trainer flights took place today. The first guest from Switzerland had been dreaming of becoming a pilot since he was a child and today, as a birthday present for his 18th anniversary, he got a flight on a real jet-trainer with aerobatic manoeuvres above the vast winter expenses of Kaluga region. The other guest from England already has a pilot license. Before that he flew propeller-planes and then he decided to get acquainted with jet-planes.

Christmas Eve in Star City

We are always glad to meet new space conquerors but there is something very heartwarming and peculiar in welcoming back old friends coming back again for the new impressions. Two years ago we arranged an extended aerospace program for a family from Switzerland. On Christmas Eve Boris and Irina with their son came to Star City again.

Once again we saw off to space an international space crew from Baikonur. Despite extreme weather conditions common for Kazakh steppes in winter many space enthusiasts from all over the world came to support the crew made up of commander Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko and flight engineers ESA astronaut David Saint-Jaques and NASA astronaut Ann MacCain . On the whole we had guests from Germany, Mexico, Singapore, Canada, Italy, Australia and of course Russia.

The winter season of jet-plane flights has begun!

Russian frosts do not frighten the real extreme-lovers. The first winter day, 1.12.2018, started with a flight of our guest from Switzerland who is a pilot himself. In frosty sunny days, the airfield acquires a unique allure. A thirty-minutes’ higher aerobatics programme on L-29 can fascinate both amateurs and advanced pilots. Meanwhile, Mansur aerobear refuses to hibernate and demands morsels and fun. In a couple of days, there were more flights on the L-29 jet trainer and on L-39 jet

Ahead to Past, Back to Future

Baikonur is an amazing place. Coming there is like travelling time (and in a certain sense space). You just find yourself in 60-es, in the times of great space explorations, great expectations, times of Korolev and Lozino-Lozinskiy. That time people believed they would go to space for work in the beginning of the 3rd millennium.

The 3rdmillenniumcame. Still we work in cities not in space and get to work by cars not by rockets or space shuttles. Nevertheless Baikonur attracts space fans from all over the world: guests from Japan, the Netherlands, Belorussia and USA could make their dream come true watching the launch of Soyuz TMA-17M manned spacecraft due to unique offer by Vegitel Company.

Such 5-days tour is like an excursion to the past and a breakthrough to the future. First comes the roll-out of the rocket and its further installation on the launchpad. After that sightseeing tours around the city of Baikonur (which by the way celebrates its 60-years anniversary this year), museums and other kinds of touristic attractions under extremely hot sun of Kazakh steppe. Press-conference of main and back-up crews was the next starting point. Looking at these brave 6 men through the glass separating them from our usual world you realize that you have become a part of really marvelous event.

After that events got more and more emotional: seeing off the cosmonauts from the hotel with traditional song “Trava u Doma” as a background, official report to the State commission, Baikonur museum visiting before the launch when walking along the halls over and over again you asks yourself a question “what do the cosmonauts feel right now when it is only 2 hours to go?”

And finally the climax: Soyuz TMA-17M spacecraft launch. We watch it from the observation point at about 1 km distance, the sky is clear and the scene look much more than impressive with all these fire bursts Earth trembling beneath our feet. Then seconds counting, 528 – orbit!

The specialists know that successful launch of only half the battle, and only when the spacecraft enters the orbit it’s time for congratulations.

And naturally the docking is undoubtedly a matter of great importance. We watched the docking on-line together with the specialists, got a chance to see the just arrived cosmonauts floating inside the ISS after hatch opening and listened to the first communication session.

That was our time to leave Baikonur and leaving you feel a kind of sad wishing to return one day to this really wonderful and unique place where people send rockets to space and believe in the triumph of human genius .
