ZHUKOVSKY (the Moscow region), August 26 (Itar-Tass) - Rehearsal of demonstration flights for the MAKS-2013 international air show started at Zhukovsky at 14:00 on Monday.
Mi-17B and Ka-226 helicopters were first in taking to the sky, flying the Russian flag over the airfield. Pilots from the Berkut (Golden Eagle) aerobatics group demonstrated their stunts on four Mi-28 helicopters, Itar-Tass reports.
Two aerobatic teams, the Russian Knights and the Swifts, will take part in the rehearsal on Sukhoi-27 and MiG-29 aircraft. Other planes participating include Su-30 and Su-35, MiG-35 and MiG-29OVT as well as Ilyushin-76, Tupolev 204SM and Tu-214ON aircraft.
