Aerobatics worked Russian and Serbian pilots. Large-scale exercises BARS-2016 are in the suburbs of Belgrade, with the participation of aviation in the two countries. Fighter pilots shared experiences with each other, and the crews of the Russian helicopters held the landing of the Serbian special forces.
The airfield in Batajnica suburb of Belgrade. Last preparations before departure. Pilots inspect the MIG-29 Serbian air force. Technicians check operation of motors and communication systems. The lantern of the cockpit lowered. Fighter taxiing on Vzletka. Within seconds the pilots in the two-seater Serbian and Russian military - to translate engines in afterburner mode. And MIG-29 rushes in the cloudless sky of the Balkan Peninsula. Making a study circle over the airfield, pilots are beginning to draw aerobatics. They twist "barrel. And doing the famous "loop the loop". To understand where the earth and where the sky is at this moment virtually impossible. All flights are operated by Serbian aircraft. 30-40 minutes in the sky. Landing, refuelling, change of crew. And the airfield again fills out the sound of roaring engines. The doctrine "BARS" - the brotherhood of aviators of Russia and Serbia - conducted a second time. Last year, pilots from Belgrade took place in our country. The main challenge, say the officers to work out the interaction of the mixed crews.
In the exercises, in addition to fighter aircraft, and involved the army. Helicopters one by one, soar into the sky. One of the spectacular moments in the exercises is the landing of the helicopter. Mi-8 hangs at a height of about 10-15 meters above the ground. At the helm of an international crew: Russian and Serbian pilots. Paratroopers - soldiers of the Serbian special forces - down on ropes and take up a defensive perimeter, covering the retreat of the helicopter. The pilot makes a landing. Change of crew, and Mi-8 goes to the next round. Those who have already flew away, sharing experiences.
After landing the helicopter start flying. Weather allows you to perform the flights at the lowest possible altitude. The feeling that the Mi-8 literally glides over the heads. Tomorrow is the final day of Barsa - re-scheduled flights of fighters. Pilots will practice the elements of air combat with an imaginary enemy.
