Pilots of the Su-27 fighters of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation conducted training air battles and accompanied a conventional air target in the sky over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea.

The fighter pilots completed the takeoff at the command “Air” at the standard time and searched for a conditional violator of the air border.

In addition, the Su-27 crews worked out the elements of complex aerobatics, including the performance of the “barrel”, “slide” with an inclination of up to 60 degrees and forced turns, piloting elements in pairs and flight in a close combat formation were also worked out.

The flights were carried out in the daytime and in the dark.

In addition to improving flight skills, the crews of highly maneuverable Su-27 fighters are on round-the-clock combat duty, guarding the air borders of the Kaliningrad region, periodically flying to escort foreign aircraft approaching the State border of the Russian Federation.
