17.04.2013 13:23

MINSK, 17 April (BelTA) A training session for commanders of air force (air defense, air force troops) of the armed forces of the CIS states will take place in Ivatsevichi District and Baranovichi District, Brest Oblast on 17 April as part of the session of the Air Defense Coordination Commission under the CIS Defense Ministers Council. Air force and air defense units will be landed on an airfield-capable section of a motorway, representatives of the Belarusian Defense Ministry told BelTA.

Su-25UB and MiG-29UB aircraft will land on the motorway, will be prepared for takeoff and relocation back to the home airfield.

Aircraft and crews of the 116th guards assault air base and the 61st assault air base of the Belarusian Air Force will be used in the exercise.

The Belarusian Air Force and Air Defense troops have been working on using motorways as replacement airfields since 2007. On 14 April 2007 for the first time in the history of the Belarusian Air Force and Air Defense two assault planes Su-25UB landed on a motorway. In summer 2007 jet fighters MiG-29 and Su-27 landed on a motorway, too.

The exercise is supposed to practice the usage of motorways as spare airfields, train the personnel for using airfield-capable parts of motorways, said the source.
