MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Murmansk region, the first flights took place in the new academic year with the crews of a separate mixed aviation regiment of the Air Force and Air Defense Army of the Northern Fleet. They passed from the Monchegorsk airfield in accordance with the combat training plan.
During the flight shift, the commanding staff of the regiment and squadron commanders on MiG-31BM fighters and Su-24M bombers taught subordinates the technique of performing complex and aerobatics at medium and high altitudes, as well as conducting short-range maneuverable air combat at low and extremely low altitudes.
About 20 pilots were involved in the flights. Up to five combat vehicles were in the air at the same time. In total, more than 20 sorties were carried out. The total flight time per shift was more than 10 hours.
The flights were carried out in low temperatures, which imposed an additional burden not only on the flight crew and the flight management team directly involved in the flight shift, but also on the aviation engineering service, which provides ground training of aviation equipment and the readiness of the runway.
