On board of one of the ILs-78, at a height of 12 100 meters the first world exposition in the stratosphere was held. The exposition united two presentations: “MVK exhibition stands in the stratosphere” and “Stars of Russian Furniture- Still higher, and higher, and higher!” The exposition was officially registered in the “Record Book of Russia” as the “First World Exposition in the Stratosphere” and it was certified by the chief editor of the book, Alexey Svistunov.
