    It used to be in Lipetsk-2. The last time was when the first Su-34 appeared there.
    Alexander Nikolaevich, it seems, was appointed to Voronezh. Now back, it turns out. Scandals, recently, in the 4 Center there were many near-corruption. I don’t know what is there and how, But Kharchevsky is a strong man, there are few of them left.
    4020-I reserve base is remembered. A lot of MiG-23 and MiG-27. Sorry for the car. There are a lot of them.
    But, not about that right now. Anyway, happy holiday!

    It’s strange. About an open solemn event in our city that nothing was heard ...
    Neither in the media nor on word of mouth ... And so I would not mind visiting.

      I called up my acquaintances from the city. They didn't know much there. There were "their" + cadets from schools. An unusually narrow circle

    We must congratulate. It is possible and necessary. Well, give the technique. Remove "managers". And then you can start shouting "Hurray" and throw up your hats. All this is nonsense .. Words ..
