The crews of the MiG-31 interceptor fighters in Kamchatka from the separate mixed aviation regiment of the Troops and Forces in the North-East of Russia conducted the first training flights over the Pacific Ocean after the New Year holidays.

The pilots of the MiG-31 high-altitude fighter-interceptors practiced the skills of performing takeoffs and landings in low temperatures with instrument piloting in the absence of visible landmarks.

Also, in accordance with the combat training plan, experienced pilots conducted training on an interrupted landing approach, in which, after touching the landing gear of the runway, it was necessary to take off using the engine afterburner.

The main task during the training flights was to improve the skills of performing the assigned tasks by the crews of MiG-31 fighters while on alert for air defense in the Far North.
