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").

We had an excellent experience with Arthur during our trip to Moscow two weeks ago. We found him to be reliable, punctual, friendly, and helpful. When we arrived in Moscow by train, Arthur was waiting outside our train car promptly at 6:30 a.m. When we left by international train, he arrived at our hotel early, took us to the station, and stayed with us until we were safely aboard. During our stay, we had an excellent tour of Sergiev Posad. Arthur also provided interesting and relevant commentary on the sites we saw and could answer any questions we had. Moscow is a fascinating city, and Arthur's services helped us enjoy it to the fullest. We highly recommend him.
