In the Saratov region, long-range aviation crews began practical training of the aviation unit of the military parade dedicated to the 76th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

In the first joint training, Tu-160, Tu-95ms and Il-78 aircraft were involved. The runway of Engels AFB was used as the main reference point for the exercises.

“The planes pass at an altitude of about 200 meters above the target point and keep a distance of about 12 meters. Maintaining such a formation during the descent is the most difficult task. They are working on everything exactly as it will be over Red Square. Getting into the parade carriage is an honorable mission, but it must be earned. This year, the crews include those who take part in the Parade for the first time, ”said the commander of the aviation squadron on Tu-95ms Fyodor Pavlyukov.

In preparation for the celebrations, all servicemen involved in the parade were vaccinated against the new coronavirus infection. A complex of sanitary and anti-epidemiological measures is being carried out. They are also under the close supervision of military doctors.
