Hello everybody! It is time to share with you my photos and comments in my new flight report. It describes a morning flight between two Russian largest cities - Novosibirsk and Samara. And a small bonus - landing in the heart of Siberia - Surgut. Some information about these cities: Novosibirsk - is the third-most populous city in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg. It is the most populous city in Asian Russia, with a population of 1,473,754. The city is located in the southwestern part of Siberia on the banks of the Ob River. Samara is situated in the southeastern part of European Russia at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers on the east bank of the Volga Surgut - is a city in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, Russia, located on the Ob River near its junction with the Irtysh River. The city is known as "The Oil Capital of Russia".
Early morning. At the entrance to the Novosibirsk Tolmachevo airport one can see the monument of the legendary aircraft in Russia. It is ex flying Tupolev 154M of Siberia Airlines (now S7 airlines).
