Taxying out for a flight to Warsaw we passed this line of aircraft UR-76778, UR-76705, UR-76717 and an unidentified Yak 42. The nose of 76717 is covered due to damage caused during an air show on 27th July 2002 when a Ukrainian Air Force Sukhoi Su-27UB performing low-altitude manoeuvres hit it. The Sukhoi crashed in flames into spectators, killing 77. Both pilots of the Su-27 ejected and survived but were later imprisoned for their negligence. UR-76717 was not broken up until 2012
