In the Far Eastern Long-Range Aviation Regiment, stationed in the Amur Region, scheduled Tu-95ms flights with refueling of aircraft in the air took place.

The flight shift was carried out in the daytime and at night at high humidity, in conditions of low temperature background.

Air refueling elements in particular took place in conditions of limited visibility, at an altitude of more than 6000 meters and a speed of over 450 kilometers per hour.

In addition, during the flights, the flight crews worked out the technique of piloting in formation during the day and at night.

The flight shift was attended by young graduates of flight and navigational military schools, who became part of the crews as assistant ship commanders and navigators. Thus, more than 10 crews have worked out the piloting technique and air navigation.
