Moscow Trip 2001

Well first I think I need to give you some background on this extraordinary trip, my friend Dave managed to win a flight to the edge of space in a Mig-25 through an internet competition. This prize was not only for him but also for 3 guests. So never being one to say no to a free all expenses paid holiday Dave, his brother Rob, Owen and myself ended up in Moscow for what was to be a superb experience. For more detailed info on the tours, what we got up to and Daves own personal description of his flight have a look at Daves MIG flight page. One word of advice don't buy the Time Out guide to Moscow it's crap.

As part of the prize we had a guided tour of Moscow, hold you mouse over the photo for a description and double click for a larger image. I've put some of the better photos on the left and the rest in sections below.
