The airfield is ready to go

The airfield is ready to go

Reconstruction of the runway (WFP) was fully completed at the airport Monchegorsk in the Murmansk region.

The length of the runway was more than two and a half kilometers, which allows the airfield to receive and send all types of combat and transport aircraft armed with air defense systems. Monchegorsk will return to the airport soon aviation A group of ZVO fighters will begin to take combat duty to protect airspace in northwestern Russia. During the reconstruction period, Monchegorsk fighter pilots carried out combat duty and performed scheduled flights from the Olenegorsk airfield in the Murmansk region. During the repair during two months on the runway of the aerodrome and taxiways, more than 1800 aerodrome plates were replaced.

      It is very good. And what about the other airfields in the Arctic? Afrikandu was closed, but Kilpyavr?

      I absolutely agree +! True, it would not hurt to lengthen the strip. Although it would be 300 meters wide, and at least 10 meters wide, or even 2400X40 recourse .. "not good" sizes. recourse
      In the sense for the south it will go, but for the "north" .... it is very problematic to sit in winters, when the "base" "breaks through" only the axial, but 5 meters back and forth request , and with a side ... generally ... sadness!

      Of the "old-timers" there is still the 98th odrap (there were Mig-25RB (etc.)

      and Su-17M3R, M4R, then Su-24MR to this day.

      From the MiG-31s: they dispersed their 174th, Saffonovsky, gave the planes to Khotilovo and to the 458th from Savvatei, which they transferred to Monchegorsk.

      Now it is "the next reformed air base" 7000. request

      I don’t know why, but even with a simple mention, the MIG-31 still causes trepidation inside almost to delight.

        MiG-31, aircraft with limited maneuverability. Everyone who switched to the 31st from 27 and 29, recalls with nostalgia their maneuverable ...

          I can not catch up with something ... what but who transplants from su-27 and mig-29 to moment-31? in my-only-from a moment-25-for a moment-31 ... really, I only served "urgent" ... maybe I'm dull ... repeat

      And I got upset about something ... We could have done it earlier. I’ve been to those lands in 2000, I have seen these airfields. In Severomorsk there is a part that deals specifically with the repair of airfields.

    That's right, you need to strive for Soviet doctrine in this area: one air unit, one airfield.
