In-flight Refueling Technique

In-flight Refueling Technique

During "The General Repetition of Victory Parade" on May 5th everything was worked out as like it will be on May 9th. Air Forces of Russian Federation will present 32 aircrafts which will finalize a grand parade on the Red Square on May 9th, 2008.

On this picture, which I was lucky to take at the beginning of Tverskaya street during the general repetition, you can see the last practice of our best pilots showing the imitation in-flight refueling technique right on the Red Square. On the top front is the huge four-engine aerial refueling tanker IL-78 (NATO code name "Midas") sending a special pipe from his tale to make connection with refueling probe above the nose of the strategic bomber and missile carrier TU-95 (NATO code name "Bear") which is at his back. They are escorting from right and left by famous jet fighter aircrafts MIG-29 (NATO code name "Fulcrum").

With BEST Regards,

Arthur is a great guide and made my time in Moscow exciting and very interesting. He put together a very unique and engaging itinerary that included some Moscow classics as well as some more specialized destinations that focussed on my interest in space and aviation. Arthur has all of the inside knowledge that can make a huge difference when trying to make the most of your time in Moscow. Whether it is how to find the best parking spot, the best way to avoid long lines in Red Square or some super interesting thing to see in a museum or a special view of the city, Arthur has the information. I strongly recommend having Arthur be your guide when in Moscow. He is super friendly, patient, has great English skills and is a great photographer to boot. I can't recommend him strongly enough. I am looking to forward to returning to Moscow again and having Arthur act as my guid again.
