I visited Hostomel last year and the 225, and a couple of 22s were there.

Nuclear energy for propulsion? That's quite a different idea to nukes like the Kiwi series, used in satellites or nuclear warheads.

Sadly, airfields are designated as 'brown field' sites for planning purposes.

So even though an airfield looks more like a farm, it's treated like an old steelworks when it comes to a decision on...

Well, it reached Lossie.
Landed after the most non-exuberant arrival I've ever seen.
I understand they've got a way to go, but a beat up would have been nice.

Either from the press, the cabin crew or the Airline.
