OK well lets do something a little different
I am putting a series of photos.
Then the trick is to find them and post here where you think they are. If it is tough I'll give clues so first set here.
So uses Google earth or Worldwind to track down the place.
No clues just yet.
(hint: delete the info bar at the bottom of the pics, cause it has the coordinates right there :hmm: )
That'd be the Seversk plant :)

Didn't see that one coming.
will do for the next one.
Oh I used to live 7 miles away from that place and from my students flat on the edge of Tomsk city you could see the steam stacks spewing steam.

Here's another one
Shouldn't be too hard even without the co-ords.

Okay, thats an interesting one. First I thought it there was an Airport on it, but on second sight there was no Runway, but definitly Aircraft, of various Times even and packed close together. So its a Museum. There are not many Aircraft museums around I think. Big Railway station or at least lots of Railway Tracks and an interstate level highway close to it. The Building in the upper right corner looks a bit familiar, but I cant place it ...

Kremlin parking lot?

Kremlin parking lot wasnt so far away. I should have checked in Moscow as well .... The place is located on 55°43'36" N / 37°30'13" E ... Visible is the Victory Museum, and next to that but not on the picture is the Victory Stele. Not sure what this place with the aircraft is called exactly but I reaffirm my guess that its an Aircraft Museum, prolly something to do with the Victory Museum.

Oneshot is the winner.
It isn't an aircraft museum only. It is a small park round the back that has aricraft various time periods and other pieces of military technika.
Also look around the park behind the war museum and see if you can spot any T-60's :)
