June 1 - Day of the military transport aviation of the Russian Federation


On June 1, Russia celebrates not only Children's Day, but also Military Transport Day aviation (BTA). On this day 89 years ago, in 1931, in the Leningrad Military District, an Experimental Airborne Squad was formed as part of the USSR Air Force, which is considered the first military transport unit in stories our country. This date was the day of the creation of a new type of air force and is celebrated as Military Transport Aviation Day.

Modern military transport aircraft performs combat missions to drop troops and equipment, is able to ensure the deployment of units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation anywhere in the world, and provides fast delivery by air of a large number of troops, cargo and equipment over considerable distances. To do this, the Russian Aerospace Forces have transport aircraft that meet modern requirements.

Today, not a single major exercise of the Armed Forces of Russian aviation is complete without the involvement of transport pilots. And this is not surprising, because the presence of military transport aviation in our country allows it to react as quickly and efficiently as possible to any changes in the international military-political situation.

The editors of Military Review congratulate transport pilots, the personnel of the Air Force Air Force and all those involved in this type of military aviation on their professional holiday. Wherever you are, in heaven or on earth, we wish you good health, family happiness and success in the service!

    Children's Day and Military Transport Aviation Day, significant. Happy holidays everyone. Dear colleagues, there are not many branches of the armed forces where there is such rallying and unity. There has never been a "caste division" in the Royal Air Force. The fine cars were lifted by mixed crews, pilots, navigators, senior onboard technicians, flight technicians for ADO, radio operators, and gunners. Brave engineers, technicians, mechanics, employees of the support battalion worked on the ground so that we could complete tasks on the ground. Much time has passed, and my hands still yearn for the steering wheel. As with mother's milk, we absorb love for the Motherland, so the love for the sky is absorbed into us.

    He flew as a passenger in the 12th and 76th. I remember - the impressions are bright!
    Unfortunately, BTA is critically insufficient for us, and the damage inflicted by Taburetkin on the marten of personnel has not yet been overcome.
    And do not say that it was a "cunning plan", it was something that everyone can see, and had no "double bottom" - greedy and stupid businessmen at the helm of the Armed Forces, acting to the best of their aspirations, for some reason not limited by anything.
