Two amazing military finds

Find #1: These guys snuck aboard some abandoned naval vessels out SF.  And here I thought I was badass sneaking into Greystone. My only complaint is: you sneak aboard an abandoned Destroyer and you only post a dozen pictures?

Find #2: An abandoned military base (Vozdvizhenka Air Base apparently). I can’t be sure because the LjJ page is written in Cyrillic which I don’t speak or read. If anyone can tell me what it says I’d be appreciative.

They were mostly LSTs and Troop transports from WW-II. I heard they stored surplus grain on them because they were isolated in the middle of the river and rats and other vermin couldn’t get to them.

    They removed all of them sometime in the late 1970’s.

    I always wanted to get a boat and go out to them but I was afraid of getting caught by security.
