Aviation related Soviet propaganda


I admit, I have no clue what they mean, but these Soviet propaganda posters look so cool! From fighters and flying propaganda machines to space rockets. Something for everyone.

      Lovely planes indeed. Hope to see you somewhere on a show in Belgium this year!


      1. YES ! Maybe …
        But I am now flying Yak-50 (when not flying 747) with the UK Yakovlevs Formation Aerobatic Display Team 😍 So more likely during an Airshow in the UK … India …. or China !
        Cheers, Etienne.

        I might hop over to the UK somewhere this year. India or China are a little bit far… πŸ™‚

    These are awesome. Thanks for sharing. The one showing the two benevolent cosmonauts is SO different from how the USA would have portrayed the Soviet space program. I hope someone comes through with the translations.

      Thanks! Glad you like it. I will do a post in the near future where I’ll take a look at the Western cold war propaganda. Could be nice to see some differences.

    Reblogged this on airscape magazine and commented:
    My friends at Apron6 have shared these great Russian aviation posters. For all its flaws, communism certainly spurs its graphic artists to achieve more… Now, can you help by translating the headlines for us?

    I love this post. Soviet posters have long fascinated me, and ones about aviation are even better!
