The OK-GLI was a test vehicle for the Buran Programme, and made twenty-five suborbital flights between 1985 and 1988. Unlike NASA’s space shuttle test vehicle, the OV-101 Enterprise, the Buran OK-GLI could take off on its own, powered by four Saturn AL-31 turbo-fan engines (two of which powered the Sukhoi Su-27 “Flanker” air-superiority fighter). Under the Buran programme, the Soviet Union made just one space flight when OK-1K1 was launched in November 1988. Totally unmanned, OK-1K1 made two orbits of the earth before landing at Yubileyniy Airfield, in Kazakhstan. At Speyer, OK-GLI is a walk-in exhibit, with visitors able to enter the orbiter’s cargo bay. •600D+EFS18-200/3.5-5.6@18mm,1/500,f/3.5,ISO800 #travelphoto #technology #historyofspaceflight #historyofflight #spaceshuttle #germanyFRESH WATER IN THE DOLOSBAGE MOUNTAINS #2 -- Shot for my photo story, "Mountains in the Jungle", which ran in the June 2018 issue of "Serendib" magazine. •600D+EFS18-200/3.5-5.6+polariser@40mm,1/125,f/4.5,ISO400 Follow the link in my profile⬆️to see more pictures, and the full story. #landscapephoto #travelphoto #photojournalism #beautifuldestination #srilankaTHE GUTS OF A STARFIGHTER — A derelict Lockheed F-104 Starfighter at the Technik Museum Speyer, Germany.
