Twenty Il-76 aircraft completed the “Afghan approach” at the airport in Ulyanovsk

56
Landing at a high angle and at a very short distance was shown on Wednesday by 20 Il-76 aircraft at the airport in Ulyanovsk. According to the commander of the military transport aviation (BTA) of Russia, Lieutenant General Vladimir Benediktov, this most complicated technique was called "Afghan call" from transport pilots.


Crews of two BTA regiments landed in the same transport order at shortened intervals with a maximum gradient (angle) of descent. The so-called Afghan approach was developed in the years of (war in - approx.) Afghanistan and was successfully used to prevent the destruction of an aircraft from the ground by enemy air defenses
said Benedict.

Twenty Il-76 aircraft completed the “Afghan approach” at the airport in Ulyanovsk


"Afghan entry" requires real skill and maximum concentration from the pilot, the commander said. Aircraft weighing about 190 tons is reduced at the limit of its capabilities, with a large roll. Benedict pointed out that such flights should be carried out in clear weather, but on Wednesday, despite the clouds, the crews successfully coped with the task.

This is one of the most intensive methods of taking off and landing. There are certain remarks in the course of the exercise, but I can responsibly say that BTA is "on the wing" today. It is most gratifying that in the crews are young pilots who fully fly along with experienced pilots
- stressed Benedict.

He noted that the landing of the aircraft in Ulyanovsk was carried out without prior preparation. According to him, such intensive landings have not yet been made at this airport, TASS.

          Dreams .. dreams, but they create a new transport aviation regiment in Ulyanovsk.
          And seeing yesterday on TV how our pilots are landing on these whoppers in Afghan ... so what, but these guys have no courage and skill.
          We hope that BTA will be equipped with everything that is necessary.

        the call is usually made from the 3rd turn, several times as a flight attendant, I participated in such a call. The sensations are really strong, but the most interesting thing is that the pilots said that in this way it was even easier to get on the landing than in a classic box!

    The attached video does not reflect the whole essence of the Afghan approach, “falling from a kilometer with a turn” is not shown, but only touching from the runway is shown. Also, all Mig-21, Mig-23, and later Su-25 fighters landed in Afghan. Moreover, falling from a height where moisture froze in the ice, in a matter of seconds the pilots found themselves in unbearable heat when the molten plastic stuck to his hands ....

          That's right. This is called a visual approach.
          "Afghan" is a completely different option, and actually difficult, especially with a maximum landing weight. yes

        On earth, plus 30 ... With every kilometer of altitude, the temperature drops by 6,5 degrees ....
        I understand that this is during takeoff and climb. And here we are talking about landing, that is, we are talking about the opposite process. If it does not bother you, describe in more detail what is wrong here. I am interested because no one mentioned the Su-17. Our regiment in the 84th was sent from the GSVG to the Union. About the planes is silent, and the pilots to retrain on the Su-24. Maybe it was so, but who will tell the ordinary soldier about this. You, as a professional, explain in more detail, if this of course does not fall under a non-disclosure subscription. hi

          Sergey good morning hi Sunset began from a height of 5-6000 m, respectively -6,5 degrees per 1000 meters, plus temperature on the ground. We started at low temperatures and on large vertical ones “fell” into heat. And all "by eye" and hand to hand. Such is the temperature regime. Well, all this was carried out in a limited space, really over the strip. Removing from the strip was not safe. The work is just filigree

            Greetings Pete hi Many thanks for the clarification, I understood the essence of the processes. When approaching, a rapid decline and immediately approach the strip. And as with take-off, because the transporter is not a fighter, and even loaded. Speed ​​picks up slowly and climb less. In the "9th company" they just shoot down on takeoff. Take off no less risky element of flight in such conditions?

          There is an air conditioning system (pressure and temperature) on the IL 76, as well as the MiG 23 (I do not know about 21 and Su 25, but probably too ..)
          In flight, it fully provides comfortable conditions ... but not on the ground in the heat or cold, the main thing is to fly up ...
          And at 76, the cockpit is also separated by a pressure barrier from the cargo compartment, as is the arrow cabin.
          Even with such a decrease in sticky plastic, the pilots will not have any hands at all ...

        As for ice - Heated air near the ground becomes light and rushes up, carrying heat with it: convection occurs. Rising, the air falls into conditions of lower pressure and, if it is dry, cools down by 1-2 ° C after every 100 m of ascent. In this case, the air containing moisture is cooled by a smaller amount: at a temperature of 0 ° C - by 0,6 ° C, at 10 ° C - by 0,54 ° C, etc. A vertical temperature change of 100 m is called thermal step. Knowing it, you can approximately calculate the air temperature at a particular height. For example, at sea level the temperature is +20 ° C, at the top of a mountain 2000 m high with a thermal step of 0,5 ° C it will be +10 ° C, at an altitude of 5000 m −5 ° C, at an altitude of 10 m −000 ° C , at an altitude of 30 m −12 ° C, etc. (sors -

    Stunned !!!!! I read how our transporters during the rebellion in the Czech Republic delivered troops to a civilian airfield. First, some sort of our plane requested an emergency landing at an airfield in Prague. They sat down, the specialists occupied the control room, the transporters pointed them out. And the carousel began. The transporter was declining, moving along the strip without stopping, and the landing force was jumping onto concrete on the move. After landing, the aircraft abruptly took off. And immediately another one landed and so on. None of the fighters were injured. Having such an Army and good power, we must prosper ...

Truth for the sake: the 103rd ORB (first if I remember the number correctly) was the first to enter Prague from the Soviet units of the 14th MSD from the 20 Guards of the GSVG, the rebellious government was arrested (if this term is suitable) by the forces of a deep intelligence company of the same battalion. They sent the rebels to the Union. Dubchek presented his father before boarding the plane; he was the commander of a deep reconnaissance company, an album with the inscription "To the winner from the vanquished" autographed by the rebellious government. The album is at my place, and the details of the events can be found in the Historical Form 32 of the ORB - the successor to that intelligence agency.
