The sad state of the Buran’s wind tunnel wooden model (1:3 scale) forgotten on a corner of the Zhukovsky airfield. This model reproduced the OK-GLI shape; Buran aerodynamic “analogue” test vehicle configuration. The Buran Analog BST-02 was constructed in 1984 and employed in a role similar to NASA Enterprise. Unlike the American, this proof-of-concept aircraft didn’t need a mothership thanks to the four AL-31 jet engines it mounted at the rear end.
Nothing compares to Russia when you’re looking for pretty wrecks.
