Landing combat aircraft – multi-role fighters su-30M2 and the Sukhoi su-34 — the pilots of a mixed air group of the air force and air defense of the southern military district conducted a pipelined manner, said the press service YUVO, adding that this technique was executed by them for the first time. The aircraft was complicated by bad weather.
As noted by the military pilot-sniper Colonel Sergei Ekimov, working out landing on the road carried out in case of war, if the airport on which to base the fighters will be destroyed. “The runway can be split with one strike cruise missiles. And to keep pilots and equipment in case of impossibility of landing on the strip, there is such a way of landing on a suitable road. This method was used even Alexander Pokryshkin, when he commanded a division near Berlin. In Germany, roads of good quality was, and now we are good.”
Also this technique can be used for covert placement of fighters. “The plane landed on the road, he hid under camouflage net and no it does not detect”.
As for the conveyor method of planting, despite the complexity of landing on unprepared runway, it is a standard in the training of pilots, said Ekimov. “This means that the planes landed and again started to take off. Touch, run, and again a gap. This way in flight schools teach the takeoff and landing of cadets. This is the normal flight activities of the reception.”
He added that many roads in our country have portions directly intended for use as runways. “For example, the road was built from Moscow to Volgograd. There are a lot of straight sections where you can land and take off”.
