Tolmachevo Museum of Aviation History
Tupolev Tu-154M RA-85628 was manufactured on 12th September 1989 by the Kuibyshev aircraft factory (Aviakor Aircraft Factory, Samara City). It was initially operated byVnukovo United Air Group under the assigned number CCCP-85628, then later byVnukovo Airlines under the State Register number RA-85628. From 2001 it served the Siberia Airlines route network until its decommissioning in 2008. During the second overhaul repair in 2004 it was painted in the then current livery of Siberia Airlines – a white hull with dark and light-blue tail fin with a «SIBERIA« logo.
This is the first exhibit of the Tolmachevo Museum of Aviation History that we are creating for our children, veterans, passengers and airport guests. We are also planning to place an IL-86 on display, which will house an exhibition located in the cockpit and a restored part of the passenger cabin, with photo and document stands and evidence of Tolmachevo’shistory and recent past”, Evgeny Yankilevich, Director General of Tolmachevo Airport, said.
