    Indeed. Hope their ICBMs are a little better looked after.

    Meanwhile, in the centre of Moscow; this is a full scale training sumulator, although our Intourist (Russian Tourist Agency) guide attempted to convince us that this was the Russian Space Shuttle, without success.

    This is looking down the Moskva River, with the infamous Gorky Park on the right; the shuttle can be seen in the amusement arcade.

    There's also a survivor at the Speyer Technik Museum in Germany.
