Державне підприємство “Антонов” 1961

Thursday, 5 September 2019

“In the mid twentieth century there was made a series of photographs advertising Soviet “An” planes to western buyers. Some of these photos have been revealed just recently. Party leaders didn’t allow them to be used abroad and the photos were kept in the archives of “Antonov” company.”

Nothing Much Happened Today.

Apparently that’s a Russian missile, fired into the Ukraine in 2014.

В Донецкой области снаряд «Урагана» пробил машину сил АТО, но не взорвался (ФОТО)
Украинские силовики, которые находятся в районе села Дмитровка Донецкой области, были обстреляны из российских “Ураганов”. К счастью, одна из ракет, попавшая в штабную машину, не разорвалась.
Как сообщает Андрей Захаров, «Дмитровка, база 12 БТрО. Очередная “петарда”, купленная сепарами в “магазине”.

Via Google Translate:

In Donetsk region, the projectile “Hurricane” struck the machine of the ATU forces, but did not explode (PHOTO)
The Ukrainian siloviki, who are in the area of the village of Dmitrovka in the Donetsk region, were fired from the Russian “Hurricanes”. Fortunately, one of the missiles that got into the staff car did not explode.

UPDATE: Thanks to a link from Reddit, here’s the story. It was a metro accident in the Ukraine in May of 2007 [story here]. Via Google Translate, we get the gist of it:

Metropolitan Express. As it were. Events eyewitness.

In short, what it was. I sat down today in the 167th Kiev on the Dnieper-Pjatihatki-butt. Conductor took the tickets, but never gave.
We drove normally. As always, stupid movie, as always tea. Already around 22:30 it started. Essno flashed in an instant. I drove the car at the very beginning, back in the direction of travel, which insanely happy. Before us was the only car-wagon. Let’s go, go, suddenly thrust. As always, the first thought when you wake up at night from the jolt in the car – push and settle down. But no, the car started to throw from side to side. Then he began to lurch from grinding. On the shelves poured luggage. Among the passengers was not much noise. When everything had settled down, began to understand everything and everything is in order. The car does not hurt anybody, like the conductor saw that hurt.

The first car the most, not counting the first section of the lock, fell on its side. My neighbor’s window was covered with a grid of cracks. The rest remained intact.
The first desire of passengers – more quickly get out of the car. But there sounded clever ideas: we do not know where we are, whether we will still fall and in what condition the car. Quickly came to their senses when they saw the rail under the windows. Began to slowly get out out through the usual exit.

Arriving in itself, took the camera and started klatsat. Photos will be later. People also podastavali camera down, and phones. And all so much fun. Smile Behind the scenes sounded a joke: “Call the conductor, even pick up the glasses.”

Almost all the passengers taken away somewhere having taken the train. I left the coach with its neighbors in a jeep. Waiting for him in the house SHCH, where the police had no news from privoloch who took Marauder – found him two new pairs of women’s shoes in a box and a bunch of canned goods. My uncle was a kind and take a drop too much baggage to explain the origin could not.

Train wreck in 70-100 meters from the little station Rasava Southwestern Railroad around 22:30 on Wednesday May 2, 2007. This, in my mind, the first serious accident “Capital Express”.

PS That’s really never would have thought that out of the car past the boiler so narrow, if selected by him when he is in a horizontal position.
