The 15-hour SU-30 fighter flight by the Hero of Russia Anatoly Kvochur and Sergey Korostiev finished successfully.

Having taken off from Zhukovsky airdrome located near Moscow on September 7th, the plane reached Chkalov Island (formerly called Udd Island) in the Amur estuary and made its way back. The SU-30 was refuelled in-flight four times from IL-78 petrol carriers. The flight’s aim was checking the performance of the navigation and communication systems and in-flight refuelling.

The honoured test pilot, the Hero of Russia Anatoly Kvochur dedicated this four times air-refuelling flight to the deed of Valery Chkalov who set the flying distance world record 70 years ago.
