Scheduled flights of Tu-95ms strategic missile carriers took place at the Engels airfield in the Saratov region.

The flights were carried out in order to maintain the training of the crews, as well as to train the young flight personnel of the long-range aviation unit.

During the performance of flight missions, the crews worked out takeoffs and landings, flights along the route and flights in a given area, both day and night, as well as in adverse weather conditions.

On the ground, the engineering and technical staff worked out the standards for servicing and preparing aircraft for re-flights at established time intervals.

During one flight shift, up to 10 units of aviation equipment and more than 20 units of automotive and special equipment of the airfield maintenance battalion were involved.
