Russia (bbabo.net), - The Yak-42 airplane presented to the city by the speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin has become a new attraction of Saratov. It is installed at the old airport next to the An-24.
According to the Telegram channel of the politician's supporters, Vyacheslav Volodin promised to purchase the last of the Yak-42 remaining in the region, produced by the local aircraft factory, with personal funds in mid-December.
Previously, the plane stood at the airport for a long time. It was proposed to make it a museum exhibit, but the question rested on the lack of funds for the purchase. The plane was threatened with scrapping. Then the locals turned to Volodin with a request.
As a result, the Yak-42 bought by the politician was donated to Saratov.
