    The guys live in Vologda. Do not believe they do not even fly ((Which is very unfortunate. Although it seems that they made noise that week))) towards Norway))
    Everything is outdated and there probably aren’t any new deliveries.

    P / S We didn’t even announce the holiday ((I think a lot of people would go look at the beauties (on airplanes)

    Actually, it was the 392nd anniversary. And just the heroes of the day, the scouts (Tu-95 RC) and not left at all! In Soviet times, there were 392-26 aircraft of this type in the composition of 28 odrap. They regularly (almost daily!) Flew to guide the VR to the ocean zone, "around the corner". The airfields of San Antonio (Cuba) and Luanda (Angola) were used on an ongoing basis. Not a single (!) American aircraft carrier passed covertly into the North-East Atlantic. There are only memories and veterans left ...
    By the way, the scouts called the Tu-142 regiment "Chinese", because it had more flight personnel than any other air regiment: the crew consisted of 11 people, and during the formation of the anti-submarine regiment, all the crews were completed, and the planes arrived later.

      Then came the endless boring speeches of bosses, leaders, politicians and others.

      But this is a lie! My classmate in the Navy, a veteran of the 392 odrap, was at this event and said that (quite briefly) only a few people spoke, including the former commander of the Navy aviation, Colonel General V. Potapov. Well, for a journalist, maybe it's boring ...

    Hello everyone, who knows how the stern shooter catapults? the cabin is very similar to that of the IL-28. I was in such a one in the attack aircraft IL-28 which was standing on the Khodynsky field.

      It catapults simply: opens the hatch and falls down. But the IL-28 is not a ground attack aircraft, but a front-line bomber, there were even modifications of a nuclear weapons carrier, as well as a reconnaissance, etc. My father in his youth flew as a navigator on the IL-28. Great, by the way, a car for its time!

        Happy Holidays to you, colleague! From your early comments I realized that you were related to the Navy's MRA? drinks

        Slightly correct, not one of the aircraft in service with the Air Force of the Soviet Socialist Republic and in service with the Air Force of the Russian Federation for riflemen of radio operators and KOU is not EQUIPPED with ejection seats .. not alone.

        Well, cars like Tu-95 and Tu-142 ... moreover, there are no catapult seats at all, ordinary pilot's seats with a "podzhopny" parachute C-3., series 3 or C-5 with command and control and APD - that's it.

        On the Tu-16th and IL-28 they jumped so ... their backs down the flight went down to the bottom step of the emergency hatch, bent down and ... forward. Well, I mean, back and how lucky!

        On the Tu-95 and Tu-142, jump out the problem. firstly, you need to "throw out the front leg", and secondly .... on K-shnyh machines it was necessary to drop a rocket. it was called a skewer or a skewer - the whole crew could be strung on it.
        Therefore, the blister from the exhaust antenna on the MR and from the "Berkut" radar on the MK ... the same ... it will be extended, and even what ... it may turn out ... eggs.! belay

        Well, feed .. jumps as I wrote above! drinks

          but I don’t remember which one, but there seems to be a bomber in which the seats are ejected down.

        thanks. for answer! thanks for the amendment. And, accordingly, the "feed" is doomed if the plane fell into a tailspin? well, or the plane crashes down? I apologize in advance for the naivety of the questions.

    What is the tradition to name planes after cities, why? As I understand it, in the past, named ships and planes had chiefs who helped the crews, sometimes just morally. Now, if the administration, residents, or at least representatives of the parties and social movements of Vologda, Vytegra or Beloozero saw the condition of "their", one might say, planes. They had to provide assistance so that the current state of the aircraft is not compared with the state in their respected cities. You don't have to dump money from all over the city on new engines, but organize traditional trips to the regiment in order to look into the eyes of the command, annoy the commander-in-chief of the Air Force, so that the board would be put for repair out of turn - there are a lot of options. Here you and the role of the veteran organization of the regiment and the patriotic education of youth.

    Good afternoon. Maybe it’s not relevant, but in 8 photos there is not enough saber with a Mohammedan star on a green background over the inscription, which, BP didn’t think of it, or NS, who brought this piece of green cloth there? No brains at all?

    Sad holiday: miraculously preserved remains were relics, planes older than any of the officers and haven’t been manufactured for a long time - the secret of designing, manufacturing, wasted staff who engineered on machines of 10, a maximum of 15 years ago. But it was a great country ... Now all that remains around Syria is to blow cheeks with fart steam ...
