SU-30 went along Chkalov’s route


On September 8th the honoured test pilot Anatoly Kvochur finished the non-stop flight in a SU-30 fighter from Moscow to the Far East and back along Valery Chkalov’s route. He landed at Moscow-area airfield of the Flight test institute named after Gromov at 15.40 Moscow time.

The flight lasted for about 15 hours; the flight distance was over 12.5 thousand kilometres, RTR reports.

The flight coincided with the anniversary of the first extra-long-range flight by Valery Chkalov and crew in an ANT-25 plane from Moscow to Udd Island. The SU-30 was refuelled in-flight four times from IL-78 petrol carriers. The flight’s aim was to check the performance of the navigation and communication systems and in-flight refuelling.
