Dense smoke at Moscow - Part III

Here are a few more pictures I took the day I departed from Moscow.

It looks like LVO due to the smoke...

Dense smoke at Moscow - Part II

August 2010

Can't go outside... and it doesn't seem to get any better at Moscow...










Red Square and Kremlin will have to wait for another opportunity...

Dense smoke at Moscow - Part I

August 2010

Due to several forest fires, Moscow has been covered with a dense smoke/smog blanket.

While passing 10.000ft during our descent to Domodedovo Airport we started to notice an intense smell of burning wood in the whole cabin of our Airbus which scared some passengers that thought there was something wrong with the aircraft!

Visibility is also severely affected as you can see in the following photos taken outside the terminal of the airport.




Despite of the air being somewhat unbreathable I hope to go to the Red Square tomorrow...
