Air Show MAKS-2017
Before the grand eventair show MAKS-2017another whole year, and around him a lot of rumors and conjectures are already beginning to develop.

Despite the fact that the organizers personally denied these rumors, regular visitors of the event still cannot understand where they should go next year to watch the fascinating air flights and see the wonders of military equipment of past years.
As stated by the head of Aviasalon, Alexander Levin, the information that appeared on the network is irrelevant and all future guests can come to their usual gathering place. As evidence, Levin presented a contract between the government Ministry of Industry and Trade and Aviasalon itself.

In addition, the well-known TASS publishing house reported that during the period when the event was planned, the standards of civil aviation flights would be tested at the Zhukovsky airdrome, and they would also hold an event for testing extreme-level aviation. Just this statement was the confirmation that MAKS-2017 will not be conducted on the territory of Zhukovsky.
