    Hi!
    I am new to this forum and
    I am planning a trip to Russia and I would like to ask you, if you could give me advice on some spots at SVO, DME, BKA, VKO and LED if I dont have car, therefore they need to be accessible on foot or by bus. I dont mind walking up to 45min.

    Also, I would like to ask you, whats the cheapest route from Moscow to fly Il62, 86, 96 or An-24 or 26 and maybe Yak 40/42, as I would like to fly on one of those.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi,

    IMHO the cheapest route to fly An-24 is from Moscow (VKO) to Pskov with UTair. The rates are 1500 RUB (approx. $61 or EUR 42) one way, and 2810 RUB ($114 or EUR 79) return trip. But there is an inconvenience: flight VKO-PKV departs Moscow at 7:10 PM and arrives Pskov 8:50 PM, but the return flight departs 7:00 AM next day, so you have to spend night in Pskov. These flights are operated from Monday till Friday.

    As for Yak-42, Gazpromavia operates this AC on the route VKO - LED
    on Fridays:
    VKO-LED 8:15 PM - 9:20 PM 3240 RUB ($132 or EUR 91)
    LED-VKO 10:30 PM - 11:55 PM 2190 RUB ($89 or EUR 61)

    on Sundays:
    VKO-LED 5:20 PM - 6:40 PM 2490 RUB ($101 or EUR 70)
    LED-VKO 7:40 PM - 9:10 PM 3240 RUB ($132 or EUR 91)

    Best regards=)

    ketko, hi mate!

    if you could give me advice on some spots at SVO, DME, BKA, VKO and LED if I dont have car, therefore they need to be accessible on foot or by bus

    I guess not many people would like to discuss spotpoint openly considering fact that it is source of interest of police and aviation security - spotting is still subject of restrictions here. Try to contact with someone of photographers directly through the A.net. JP. PS etc. - they might will help you with locations and accompany you.

    I dont mind walking up to 45min.

    Then you've choosed the wrong country, mate! ;)

    Also, I would like to ask you, whats the cheapest route from Moscow to fly Il62, 86, 96 or An-24 or 26 and maybe Yak 40/42, as I would like to fly on one of those.

    See above but note that most of major Russian airlines are accessed to international booking nets - you can find their rates at the internet or at the tourists offices. See the flights to big cities closest to Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod for example.

    Closer to date of your arrival ask guys here regarding info on special fares - it can be a certain chance. Quite a few chances to get realy cheap tickets for Il-62 or Il-96.

    and avoid you from the dark forrest, deep bogs, sniper positions, and minefields....
