Helicopters of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District conducted training in extinguishing forest and area fires in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

Due to high temperature standards, the crews of the Mi-8 and Mi-26 helicopters checked the operation of the VSU-5 spillways and carried out an aerial reconnaissance of the places of water intake from natural water sources.

Also, the crews flew in poor visibility conditions at extremely low altitudes to hone their approach skills over burning areas.

In total, about 10 units of aviation equipment were involved in the training, as well as over 100 servicemen of the technical and flight personnel of the Western Military District.
