In the morning Yuri and Natalia met me for a tour of the city, before I hit the road. I’m glad they did because it was really interesting and I’d have missed it otherwise.
First stop was a trip to the Pyotr Nesterov monument. Pyotr was a Russian pilot who was the first person to perform a loop in an aeroplane. This was done in a Neiuport IV monoplane, in case you were wondering!
