• The restaurant, from which you do not want to go to
And that, on the one hand, the awful, because prices there are not very democratic. But it was enough to him to come and sit down at the table, as a constantly wanted all considered to spin in all directions, and it is better to jump off and climb, explore the interior ...
And all because the restaurant is made in the form of a hangar, inside which stands a real IL-14!
The idea of this restaurant came up with the Swiss driver Reto gurgled and originally he wanted a Dc-3, or The Metropolitan Convair 440, but these curiosities were too expensive. As a result of searching the Il-14, 1957 release has been found in Russia, who served in the Air Force until 1991, and then transferred to the Smolensk Air Club.
"It was a gift from the BBC (where he flew under the number" 21 Red ") Smolensk flying club and what to do with it, the flying club categorically did not know" - writes on his page flyer .Litvinov.
"... distilled under its own power from Smolensk North and it costs more than a year. They can sell it for about 22t. rub. Here the aircraft intact. Not without incident distilled in Myachkovo ... Then even a few commercial flights. Lipetsk Moscow-Petrozavodsk-Moscow ... Now the IL in Zurich, said of him made the restaurant "... In Myachkovo aircraft repainted and assigned FLA-01146 registration number.
began negotiating the purchase of IL-14 in 2002, Reto.

From the street you can look - a wall of glass.
went inside and took a table with these carried aboard aircraft seats, armrests of which removed another table - after which eat on the plane, passengers of the first row of business class or those who sit in the emergency exit. The menu is made in the form of a flap piece and food carried about on the very narrow airplane trolleys that run between the rows.
Of course, we chose the Ilyushin 14.
