In the Ryazan region, a special tactical exercise with a separate engineering airfield battalion of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District (ZVO) was completed.

A drawing of an episode was held to restore the airfield, destroyed as a result of missile and bomb strikes. The battalion units worked out individual elements of the high-speed construction of a field airfield to replace the main one that had failed. The servicemen rolled the soil to a certain density, made markings, erected fences on the runway, erected earthen ramparts to shelter aviation equipment.

In addition, training was carried out to extinguish a fire at the field airfield, as well as to provide medical assistance to the wounded.

More than 50 specialists from engineering departments, more than 10 units of special equipment and mechanization equipment were involved in the exercise: a KS-3574 truck crane, an EOV-4421 single-bucket excavator, a B-10.02 traction class bulldozer, an ADD-304 autonomous diesel welding unit, and a piston diesel compressor PKSD-5.25.
