​There's something jarring about this footage captured from a drone zipping above a boneyard filled with once mighty Russian aircraft. The aerial arsenal looks downright depressing just sitting there in the snow reminding us how powerful those machines were in the not-too-distant past.

The field is scattered with several types of planes ranging from a massive Tupolev to a tiny Yakolev, all looking like they've seen better days. Russia Today captured this video at the Central Air Force Museum, located an hour east of Moscow. 

It also looks very cold there.
