      Transport workers always work clearly! Happy Holiday!

      I don’t know how possible this is, but Russia should reanimate the Soviet air transport system, in which all civilian aircraft were used for military purposes in case of war. Immediately the special reserve is ready.

"These transformations are provided for by the state armament program, calculated until 2020," the commander said.

      from the text somehow the idea arises that the article of the year is so 2009

      Indeed, it’s somehow not very beautiful for the Holiday. However, with the HOLIDAY!

      I dare to "correct", in honor of the holiday, wink This film is about Maritime Intelligence Aviation, rying:, so this film has nothing to do with BTA!

    Talk before flying 76 at the airport of the former southern republic.
    "Commander, take me on board on vacation.
    Nowhere - you don’t see the caravanserai. Sheer overload, and you still carry so much vodka with you.
    Commander, I’ll be a reptile - with you now I’ll drink all of it - take it.
    Well, not all and you are not the only one - come in. "
    Well, something like this happened. As soon as I went aboard - I'm all at home.
    We considered these sides a piece of Russia.
