I just noticed that the ADI is totally upside down from a modern airplane. Usually brown is ground and blue sky is up.

Cheaper to produce? Kommissar says we must be prudent with the People's Rubles... no?

This is common in Soviet designs.  Brown is still the ground and the sky is still blue.  Vonrd's link above is a good one.

That is just so wrong! Bad enough trying to read the altimeters and such on German aircraft and now this??

He looked to have busted a few FAA regs. Sure didn't look like he was 500 ft min altitude and well above 250 kts below 10,000 ft several times! Very cool though.
