At the Ivanovo-Severny airfield in the Ivanovo region and the Budikhino landing site in the Kostroma region, the first mass landing in 2022 of the personnel of the Ivanovo Guards Airborne Force from Il-76MD military transport aircraft took place.

The takeoff of three Il-76MD aircraft was carried out from the Ivanovo-Severny airfield, after which, having covered more than 80 km, the personnel of the formation parachuted in full gear with weapons and equipment to the Budikhino landing site in the Kostroma region.

Landing was carried out on D-10 parachute systems from a height of 600 meters, with a separation interval of 0.7 seconds in two passes.
