MOSCOW, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Four Yak-130 training planes of a new aerobatic group of the Russian Air Force would participate in the air parade over Red Square in Moscow on May 9, Air Force spokesperson Igor Klimov told ITAR-TASS.
A group of four Yak-130s was planned to participate in the Victory Day parade. What a name to give to the aerobatic team was not decided yet, he said.
The team would show piloting skills at various altitudes and perform "Nesterov loop", "Tulip", "Barrel" and other aerobatic elements, Klimov said.
Air Force pilots in Yak-130 planes continued to train together with the Swifts team in the air near Borisoglebsk. They carried out single and group flights to master piloting skills at altitudes from 300 to 1,500 meters, he added.
Test pilots of the Yakovlev design office as instructors helped to train the aerobatic group. The training began in Borisoglebsk in October 2013, the officer said.
The Yak-130 is a new two-seat jet for training and combat operations. It can be used under hard weather conditions. The plane can land on unprepared grounds.
