Engels Air Base, Saratov Oblast

Homework for today: satellite photographic reconnaissance interpretation!

Click the link, switch to satellite view and locate the airbase. This base has the hottest stuff in the Russian Air Force arsenal: I counted at least ten Tu-95 Bears and a similar number of Tu-160 supersonic bombers. There is an aviation Museum just north-west of the runway. See if you can find it.
