All of the aircraft in the static display could be photographed nicely and some even from the inside and showed the huge variety of the aircraft that originate from Gostomel with the aim to transport large cargo as far and efficient as possible.
Though the propeller-driven planes such as the An-12, An-140 or An-22 did not take-off, flight presentations were shown by the civil An-148, its successor and stretched version An-158, An-74 STOL freighter, and the heavy transport An-124 'Ruslan'. They all showed nice take-offs with a slight bank to left and did one to three rounds in the air before coming back to the ground. Not too much as one might think, but seeing those aircraft flying is a rare, and thus lucky, opportunity, especially in such a close succession.
