Sheremetievo. Spotting while waiting for a flight
My journey to Italy began in
Koltsovo airport in Yekaterinburg. Originally I planned to
fly to southern Europe via Istanbul, as I have done many times before, but now
Aeroflot offered a lower price. The answer is simple - the Euro exchange rate
it has recently risen, and Aeroflot's rouble prices have not yet reached their lowest level.
changed. I have booked a round trip ticket for Yekaterinburg-Moscow-Rome,
I chose the payment currency in euros and paid with a card with an account in euros. In
as a result, the entire flight cost me 247 euros.
Out of old habit, I shoved my warm clothes in my pocket. I put my backpack in my Luggage, but there was an ambush waiting for me in Sheremetyevo - the temperature was high 15 degrees Celsius with a minus sign and disembarking from the plane on the field with delivery to the airport terminal by bus. After all, it's the end of March, and I don't know why. the platform shows traces of recent snowfall.
My memory was filled with an ice-cold image. the shed is a semi-trailer, towed by a ZIL-130, without any hint of a tractor. climate control equipment that still had to wait on frosty wind - from an era when landing galleries could only be seen in the sky. films "about abroad". But it wasn't so bad - just a little it was necessary to go down the ramp to the waiting bus, in which it was quite comfortable.
It was almost 4 hours before the flight to Rome, and I took a leisurely photo of the airlift liners in my patrimony.

Sheremetyevo-2 air terminal - a cult building Soviet era, the main international airport of the country of Soviets and a symbol of the Soviet era loopholes in the "iron curtain". In those days ,you could" look behind the curtain" only the chosen ones.
I noticed a huge accumulation of Luggage carts between the landing galleries.
By in fact, the gate is not used, but could receive planes. Yes and looks like it it's not very aesthetic. I haven't seen this in more than one airport, not even in the Russia.
