Notes:

The very first public presentation of this unique Mriya-Buran 'duet'. No doubt, this perfect pair is the peak of the Soviet aerospace science and technology. Many people of Kiev had a unique opportunity to admire Mriya and Buran on the eve of their departure to Le Bourget, Paris Air Salon. Dedicated to the 20th anniversaries of the first launch of Buran (November 15, 1988) and the maiden flight of Mriya (December 21, 1988).

Nice photo, and until now, I did not know, that Buran was flying before Mriya
