The house of the aircraft is one of three art objects on the territory of modern Russia (the first one is in Kazan on the territory of Kazan National Research Technical University named after A. N. Tupolev with the cabin of TU-124, the second one is in Susuman, Magadan region, on the territory of the Children’s Art House with the cabin of IL-18). The cabin of YAK-40 K was used at the Borovsk Aircraft House. Board number 87900 was previously operated by Aeroflot, and later by KrasAvia (Evenkia), was in operation since July 12, 1977 until 2021 (43 years, 6 months).

On May 7, 2022, on the eve of the Victory Day celebration, the cabin was delivered from Cheremshanka airport (Krasnoyarsk region) to the town of Borovsk and took honorable place on the pedestal near house number 22. The house has a private museum dedicated to the development and history of civil aviation in Russia and specifically to the Yak-40, the world’s first turbojet passenger aircraft for local airlines. The collection also includes technical literature, maintenance manual of the YAK-40, souvenirs of Aeroflot, Transaero and KrasAir airlines, as well as caps, uniforms of pilots, cabin crew, stewardesses and many other things that are hidden from the eyes of aircraft passengers.
