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").

During our first trip to Russia, Arthur was a fantastic driver, guide and resource! During the planning phase of our trip, it was reassuring to have someone that knows Moscow to recommend hotels and the logistics of travel.

For 5 days, Arthur helped us navigate museums, churches, historical sites and restaurants. He was very knowledgeable about Moscow and it’s history and provided important context around the places we visited.

On our first night in Moscow, we took the night tour and it was magical. Standing in the middle of Red Square with the Kremlin, St. Basil’s and the mammoth Gum department store strung with lights is not to be missed.

I would recommend Arthur to anyone for a personalized and stress-free visit to Moscow!
