A special place

  2. 2. Carried out by<br />Victoria Moiseenko,<br /> form 7A,<br /> School №4, Akhtubinsk,<br /> Astrakhan region.<br />Teacher:Voloshchuk Elena Iliinichna.<br />
  3. 3. In the north of Astrakhan region there is a small but well-known all over Russia town Akhtubinsk.<br /> It has spread along the Akhtuba banks. <br /> It’s population’s about 50 000 people. <br />

  7. 7. My SPECIAL PLACE in Ahtubinsk is an aerodrome. Great aircraft shows take place here!<br />
  8. 8. Akhtubinsk is unique because it is the only small town where great aircraft shows take place several times a year. They attract a lot of people from all over the country.<br />
  9. 9. I enjoy visiting the aerodrome on the days of those exciting aircraft shows. We can see how powerful, swift and “smart” fighting planes are! We have a good chance to take a photo in front of a plane or helicopter, get into a fighting plane and even interview a real test-pilot or engineer!<br />

  13. 13. Besides, the aerodrome is a place that has become a part of work and life for my father, EvgeniyMoiseenko. He is a test engineer.<br />
  14. 14. He is an Army officer, a test engineer. This might be one of the reasons why I decided to carry out this project.<br /> For almost 12 years I've known only one soul of his personality: great Daddy! Big and strong, he always encouraged my adventurous ideas and independent resolutions. He never punishes me when I make mistakes but he doesn't like it when I don't try. He often says, ''Work saves us from 3 great evils: boredom, vice and need"(Voltaire). <br />My Father<br />
  15. 15. He loves his job and can't imagine his life without it. And as Aristotle said: "pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work."<br />
