In Begoml there is a plane-monument «Il-14Т» that was erected there to commemorate the role of the local guerrilla airfield during the Great Patriotic War. It is located directly at highway M3 that is also one of the main streets of the small town.

«IL-14t» is a type of post-war aviation. Once it was used in polar aviation, and later it was given to the Museum of guerrilla aviation in Begoml. Its on-board value is «02». Initially, the numbers on the fuselage were dark green. But in 2005 the airplane was rebuilt - the upper part became white, the lower - green, and the inscription was made in red ink.

Until July 2004 the plane was located in the courtyard of the Museum of National Glory in Begoml. Later it was moved closer to the highway to commemorate the feat of partisans during World War II.
