It is proposed to assign the name of Timur Apakidze to the new SF air regiment


“When the aircraft carrier after the separation of Russia and Ukraine in 1991 was transferred from the Crimea to the Northern Fleet, the question arose of its disposal, since there were no pilots capable of landing the aircraft on its deck in the conditions of the Far North. Apakidze, not only the first of the combatant pilots, landed the Su-27K combat fighter on the deck of a heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser, but also prepared a whole galaxy of deck pilots who were able to work out landing on the ship’s deck in polar conditions, ”the release reads.

It is reported that “Major General Timur Avtandilovich Apakidze was the first of the naval combat pilots aviation On August 17, 1995, the Northern Fleet was awarded the highest rank - Hero of the Russian Federation. He received it for participating in the campaign of an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea. ”

According to the press service, “the number of fighter landings made by Apakidze on the deck of an aircraft-carrying cruiser has not yet been achieved by any of the current pilots of naval aviation of Russia.”

Apakidze died in July 2001 g during the performance of demonstration flights at the Combat Training Center near Pskov.

“In the name of the hero, streets are named in the garrison of the pilots of the Northern Fleet - Severomorsk-3, the city of the Island of the Pskov Region and in the village of Novofedorivka in the Crimea. Busts of Timur Apakidze were installed in the park on Safonov Square in Severomorsk and on the alley of heroes in the village of Novofedorovka, ”the report says. On Wednesday, such a bust was opened in the Museum of the Federation Council.

Help press service: "Su-33 (also known as Su-27K; according to NATO codification: Flanker-D) is a fourth-generation Soviet / Russian deck-based fighter developed for the Russian Navy in the Sukhoi Design Bureau under the direction of Mikhail Petrovich Simonov. ”

      Everlasting memory...! And how many of these in Russia have been and still are ...
      Where did we suddenly get such a development ..? They kept them (drawings, etc.) in tables in Khrushchev and their wives shouted that you were a complete "sucker" ... But they knew that they would be useful for the Motherland .. And they were not going to give up! Thank you so much, to the True Patriots ...! So you need to erect a monument, who waited and dreamed that Russia would be reborn! Many died, but the development bequeathed ... Oh, sorry that they all do not see now!

        I did not even read further. Apakidze of course! Eternal Glory to Him! In such a mess, he preserved the Honor and interests of the Motherland! When even the “presidents" of the country betrayed, sold their homeland ...
        And as the New Aircraft Carrier will be, call It by Name. The only way.

          That's right, it's all good!
          Hero of Russia Timur Apakidze, largely thanks to whom the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier cruiser was saved from disposal
          The whole Sever-3 prayed for him and Apakidze not only saved the Tavkr, but the entire garrison with all the infrastructure. The crooks and those with breath were talking about MUSIC Apakidze.

            I don’t know about an aircraft carrier, but an air regiment is a must!
            By the way, maybe, somehow, to support this petition by voting? Well, which petition from the readers of VO should I fix?

      Not all Georgians are the same, not all Saakashvili. I have known this all my life. In my opinion, for such an uncle, an aircraft carrier of his name is the best memory! Such men have no nationality.

      Vasily Filippych, as always, is right
      It doesn't matter what skin color or eye shape you have. For the enemy, you are all Russian soldiers.

          But in fact - explain who understands more than me. I understand that there would be a special operation, a free search there or something else ... But then the whole world knows about us, America sees planes from satellites perfectly - we have no one to hide from. So where are our RED STARS that the whole world knows about and is afraid of? Let them look and shake! We also have nothing to be shy about - they are covered in such glory that enough for the rest of the world combined ... I don’t understand ...

      What, in your opinion, is an aviation regiment less worthy of high honor than an aircraft carrier?

      The new aircraft carrier, which is, and indeed whether the new aircraft carrier will be part of the Russian Navy, is a big question. The production of engines for the TFR cannot be established, and you are dreaming of a new aircraft carrier.

      My God, what does the ship have to do with it ??? In SF, not only ship-based is implied. But does the fleet have a base near Moscow? Ostafyevo kind of.

      I personally knew Timur. A wonderful man, a pilot from God. The most competent officer who constantly worked on himself. I "crossed paths" in service with a very large number of generals and admirals, and I want to note that Timur (unlike many "big-stars") was absolutely uncharacteristic of arrogance, arrogance, especially rudeness. A true professional and business man. By the way, karate (black belt) was very good. An example to all at all times!

    Timur Avtandilovich with his life, service, devotion to deck aviation proved that his name is worthy to perpetuate on the tablets of the history of the Navy.

    A typical example of the role of personality in history. As with a ship, - one person in the 91st would not have decided to boldly leave the Black Sea and we would not have had a single aircraft carrier cruiser. I would not want to put the plane on the deck of Apokidze and would have cut the cruiser into scrap metal. They were built in Nikolaev and there could be at least 5 ships now, correct me if I am mistaken! But in the end, one with great difficulty remained in service. If we imagine that we have 5 TAKRs floating now, this thing would be ....

    Yes sir. Apakidze’s uncle of my godfather was a comedy, during their joint service in Sakki. So he still Apakidze only kindly recalls. And about how he was the first, in my opinion, 5 flyers, he dragged on take-off / landing from the deck of an aircraft carrier. Uncle Alexander says that only Apakidze and one more pilot boarded the deck the first time, he himself came out with only 3 calls. And also, that "cormorants" is the elite of the Air Force. drinks
