“We are ready to receive everyone at the museum, including guests of the 2014 IIHF World Championship,” Mr. Seroshtan said. The Borovaya museum is growing in popularity. More visitors, including children are coming here. The exposition contains a range of aircraft, including the Yak-40 with works number 9620748, which was produced by the Saratov Aviation Plant in 1976. This aircraft was used by a range of aviation organisations like Belavia and Latvian Airlines. In Latvia it was used for the transportation of statesmen. In 2000, the Yak-40 was used for the benefit of the Belarusian government, including for the prime minister who flew on it.
Another notable aircraft is the MiG-15UTI. In 1968, Yuri Gagarin crashed in such an aircraft. The museum also has many military models from the well-known KB range, named in honour of Artem Mikoyan, and Mikhail Gurevich (MiG) and the native of Belarus Pavel Sukhoi (Su).
