In the Amur Region, the crews of Tu-95ms complete flights in adverse weather conditions
In the Amur region, at the Ukrainka airbase, the crews of the Tu-95ms strategic missile carriers performed the first flights in the summer training period, in difficult meteorological conditions.
Flight training was carried out with the aim of teaching young flight personnel the skills of controlling strategic missile carriers in poor visibility conditions. During the flight missions, the pilots had to navigate only by onboard instruments.
An important feature of the flight shift was a training exercise for taking off and landing on a shortened runway in difficult meteorological conditions.
Experienced pilots also took part in the flights, for whom flying in a difficult meteorological situation contributes to improving the previously acquired skills and maintaining a high level of training.
