MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Military pilots of Russia’s Central Military District have carried out a unique six-hour flight aboard the Mikoyan MiG-31BM interceptor aircraft during joint exercises of operational and tactical aviation and an anti-aircraft defense division, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday.
"The combat aircraft of this type have carried out a non-stop flight from the airport Domna (Trans-Baikal Territory) to the airport Sokol (Falcon) (Perm Territory). The flight, during which the crews of the MiG-31MB aircraft covered more than 4,000 kilometers, was carried out with three night aerial refuelings," the report says.
