MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. The crew of the Russian military-transport aviation’s Ilyushin Il-76 (NATO reporting name: Candid) multi-purpose strategic airlifter has for the first time landed at a temporary seasonal snow-covered airfield on Alexandra Land Island in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago in the Arctic, the Russian Defense Ministry reported Thursday.

The flight was carried out in adverse weather conditions, the statement said. The engineering and technical staff is currently preparing the aircraft for a return flight.
