Russian Aerospace Forces completed the simultaneous takeoff of six An-124-100 Ruslan military transport aircraft

Russian videoconferencing for the first time in stories worked out the simultaneous take-off of six An-124-100 Ruslan military transport aircraft. Teachings aviation took place in the Bryansk region, the press service of the Ministry of Defense reports.


Crews of six An-124-100 Ruslan aircraft from the Seshchinsky and Tver aviation regiments took part in the training flights. The purpose of the exercises was to practice the simultaneous transfer of personnel of military units with standard weapons and equipment over a long distance.

The flights were carried out at an altitude of over 4 thousand meters, the total length of the route was more than 600 km, the average aircraft speed was 500 km / h.


The Ruslan crews performed takeoff, landing and en-route flights in adverse weather conditions in the form of precipitation, low clouds and strong gusts of wind.


The training was supervised by the commander of the VTA of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Lieutenant-General Vladimir Benediktov, with the involvement of the leadership of the VTA command and the 12th military transport aviation division.

Note that this exercise is widespread in the US Air Force and is called the "elephant ride". It is designed to practice the mass takeoff of aircraft in a situation where it is necessary to lift as many aircraft into the air as possible in a minimum time.

      And I only saw. And a bunch of times I imagined yes goodReally beautiful airplane. Well, what were these exercises about? Evacuate the Kremlin? If you think sensibly. Okay in the West. B 52s take off in this way. Already a bunch of years ago. Well, transport workers? !!!!! .... wassat Are they in a column with a police turn or something? laughing That's what I would look at! good

          Not difficult to read. Difficult to understand why !!!!! Well, except for beautiful shots, apparently for nothing else. Did you like the video? Yes, I do. We'll stop there. And apparently there is no other intelligible why, and there will never be. Well, we have nowhere else to spend money in Russia as on such very beautiful shots.

            I gave you a quote for what it is needed! How else can I explain? Such training and flights are a whole range of operations, they are needed by the crews and the engineering and technical staff for combat training, as well as to escape from under attack and transfer to other airfields in order to disperse, in such flights combat coordination skills are acquired, the class qualifications of pilots are increased.

                  Why did you decide that a civilian does not know how to think sometimes better than any warrior? Well, yes, an iron excuse. "working out military coordination" We just civilians consider every penny we earn. In contrast to you. And we want to know and see that we (civilian) earned money you spend on what you really need. And if something happens, you will not start screaming "get up, a huge country" As you usually do warriors. Remembering about us civilians when you are kirdy without us. And all your show-offs can just wipe. I hope you don't need to give examples from the history of the last century? Yes and this too.

                    A civilian can naturally think better than warriors, I will note not everyone, and not in military affairs! This requires knowledge in the field of military affairs, knowledge that is acquired not only sitting at the study table, but also in practice! You will not understand this until you pass the KMB and serve, you will not understand what unity of command is !!!! Did you even serve?
                    You know little about military history, and indeed you don’t know at all. Under Peter the Great, the recruits were hooked to their feet with hay on one leg, on the other straw, so that the peasant could understand when he was right when he was left, this is the most elementary of history. The expression of the army - walking on the machine, you will also not understand, and in this expression it is precisely the money and taxes of the people that are guarded. From the outside, if you see this - walking on the machine, you tell me this is what they are doing!
                    So Observer2014, you just watch and listen to what the military say and write on this site topwar.ru.
                    I recommend saving your wise thoughts for the kitchen table.

        Well, what were these teachings about?

        By and large - about nothing, they just spent the money pledged for the exercises until they were taken away for other needs in the Aerospace Forces. Even the takeoff of one such aircraft is not ignored by the strategic intelligence of the United States and NATO, which means that there can be no question of any surprise. Their entire flight and route was tracked from the very beginning, which means that in the event of war they would have been destroyed on the way to the state border or to the front line. But pilots must be able to fly, so there will be benefits at least in terms of improving their skills. It is not clear why such a pump is, as far as I remember, in Soviet times, 20-30 transport workers were simultaneously raised.

          They could work out the transfer not only "to the foothold to the enemy", but also inside the immense - from the European part to the Far East, for example. Or to Central Asia.

          Sometimes one and a half - two hundred at a time, but from different airfields. In January 1990, in groups of 40 - 42 Il-76s took off simultaneously, during the transfer of paratroopers to Azerbaijan. Several divisions transferred their combined brigades.

        Practicing the emergency transfer of troops. In the USA, transport workers are also working on the "Long Walk". Yes, and we had it before.
        And what !
        I remember in January 1990, within a few hours, four airborne brigades were transferred to Azerbaijan from different divisions, and at the same time the families of officers from all garrisons were also evacuated by air - to An-12, Il-76 and An-22 .. And ... 17 helicopter regiments !!! 42 - 46 helicopters each !!!
        This was a walk — a walk for all walks.
        Our command post then almost choked with goals.
        But they did it.
        Without failures and disruptions of maintenance.
        My watch was then, I personally supervised the wiring ... the whole sky in helicopters ... you won't forget that.
        And here there are only 6, albeit large planes ...

      Actually, there is no Paaszhirsky compartment in Ruslan. In the tail compartment (on the second floor) there is a compartment for the rest of the service personnel (operators). In the bow (on the second floor) there are cabins (compartments) for the rest of the replacement crew. And there is nothing for passengers.

          It is possible, but you will have to search this resource for practicing a massive takeoff of the US Air Force military transport aviation in exercises simulating a nuclear attack. Everything is learned in comparison, take off very tightly one after another ... on the verge of a foul. If I find you ahead, I will throw off the link. The event takes place in spring or summer, an airfield in a desert area, for the suspension from the raised sand with swirls on the planes from the taking off heavy machines makes an indelible impression and I pay tribute to the skill of the pilots, regardless of their affiliation and religion, ours or partners. It seemed to me that the pipeline was working at the limit of possibilities. hi The video was posted in early summer, if I'm not mistaken.

            Not convincing. Takeoff is in any case NOT SIMULTANEOUS, but sequential, albeit with minimal intervals. Only this can be called simultaneous.

            Namely, heavy airplanes can take off SIMULTANEOUSLY from several different runways by a common signal. hi

    "worked simultaneous take off six at once
    military transport aircraft "
    What was shown in the video is called sequential
    takeoff with a minimum interval. Nothing special about
    there is no such take-off, different groups always take off
    aircraft, from fighters to strategists. For reference -
    during takeoff of the Tu-22m3 group, the minimum interval is 1 minute.

      As far as I understand, for transport workers it is more important not so much to take off as to land with such a minimum interval. If this, too, has been worked out, then colossal organizational work has been done on the interaction of crews and ground services.

        It often happens that after completing the task of mass airborne assault, the transport workers will be ready to land at alternate airfields. So there is no "pandemonium" when landing on a "native" speaker.

          This is in the case of a landing mission ("Ruslans"?). And in the case of a flight purely like a truck - from airfield A to airfield B? Then the "crowd" does not work?

            No problem. They will be planted with an interval of 10-15 minutes and waiting in the zone. Any major airport has an even tighter take-off and landing schedule. They work and do not see anything super complicated in it. And landing a dozen planes in turn is easy.

        not her pathetic remains.

          we are a division (about 50 units)
          sat down at 2-minute intervals, and no
          it was not difficult for the crews,
          nor for terrestrial services.

          So now all this has to be re-created / organized. Alas, of course, but still this is progress after the collapse, and not vice versa.

    Well done, it's even hard for me to imagine how much and what these six Ruslans can lift into the sky, transport and unload ...
    And for some reason, I immediately remembered these frames ...

    Russian Aerospace Forces completed the simultaneous takeoff of six An-124-100 Ruslan military transport aircraft

    The main thing for the author is the attention-grabbing title. This is now such a fashion in the media.

      This is for sure, I completely agree. This young author has apparently never seen massive takeoffs of aircraft, starting with landing operations using TB-3, An-12, Il-76 ... The USE generation is not interested in history. Just to show off somewhere in the networks and grab stupid likes.

    And what about them with the resource then? According to rumors, the Ruslans of the VTA do not have too much of it.

    And an air jump? As it is illogical, a bunch of equipment in the air, people in this technique ... It's even scary to imagine what one enemy fighter can do ...

        And how deep can the rear be in modern realities? And why transfer many people and equipment from rear to rear in such an expensive way?

    I thought, at the same time, it was at the same time that the chassis was torn off? In general, the VO administration should carefully check the released material! Review written in state AO!

      Quite right. This is what a SIMULTANEOUS takeoff looks like. , And this author, saw the planes only in pictures and is trying to babble something about aviation.

    An-124 in the amount of 12 pieces after the reduction in 2012 remained on the aerial. Sescha. And here is not a regiment, but a separate squadron. Then only three Ruslans and one Il was a worker. Since then, the An-124 has not been victorious at the parade. Reaching 6 boards to raise, good luck.

    Bez 310 (Bez310), dear, take off my hat! I saw the handsome Tu-22M3 from Poltava only once in my life in the summer of 1984 in Machulishchi. True, the old Tu-22 regiment took off in the direction of Minsk and landed, especially in the spring, returning from Balkhash, in 40-50 minutes. Considering that 1 and 2 AEs were in caponiers, they had to "reach" the runway, only 3 AEs were taxiing, the spectacle was strong!

    Piramidon (Stepan. Russia), dear, in your video there are not people at the controls of the planes - but the ELITE OF THE COUNTRY! To our great regret, the "Papuans", who occupy the seats of mayors and governors, are jumping on the stage in feathers, or with the money of "national treasure" they broadcast their thoughts - we all know. But these men who have achieved mastery in military affairs, we do not know either by their last names or by sight. After all, no one has broken the world record together with the Swifts.

    simultaneous take-off of six military transport aircraft An-124-100 "Ruslan"

    Oh my USSR, how we have become impoverished. What kind of transport workers did you ever do. What happened, then do not forget.
