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,

I visited Moscow in late March, 2013 and Arthur was recommended by my St Petersburg guide. I am a hobbyist photographer and I was interested to find out that Arthur was also 'into' photography, so I keenly awaited meeting him and being guided around Moscow for 3 days. Well, what can I say? I could not have done what I did without Arthur! An amazing time, amazing sites and an excellent guide. We had fun, we hammed it up for each other and we both learnt new aspects of photography from each other. I hope to return to Moscow sometime and would not hesitate for one millisecond in engaging Arthur again. It's worth it, even if to just hear him swear at the infamous traffic! Большое спасибо, Arthur!
