In the postwar period, a period in surrounding 1950 — 1980's., Will take some stagnation in the text-board "work." Planes stop doing puzzles flying propaganda posters, and all the information on them is minimized.
First steps revives registered aircraft in the Russian aircraft were manufactured after the collapse of the Russian Union of and in connection with sovereignization Russian Federation.
In 1991, on the basis of 3 aircraft squadrons 234th Aviation Regiment of the mixed (with the re-formed in 1992 237 Guards Red Banner Orders Proskurovsky Kutuzov and Alexander Nevsky Center display aircraft) were formed aircraft aerobatic teams:"Russian Knights", "Swifts"and "Do notRaging Hussars "in the short term have received well-deserved reputation in Russia and abroad. The names of the pilots were decorated aerobatic teams own aircraft fuselages. These names are, in fact, their business card.
Airplanes "Knights" and "hussar" painted in the colors of Russian tricolor on the keels have caused the Air Force flag image. First Su-27 aerobatic team "Russian Knights" repainted not one hundred percent, tail section remained camouflaged. Three of the Su-27 crashed in Cam Ranh. New aircraft "Knights" is completely repainted, but "somewhat camouflaged" board 04 "is flying now.
Similar to the aircraft, "Russian Knights" colors have the Su-27 and the Lipetsk PPI PLC, making them occasionally confused. On Lipetsk Su-27 is no inscription "Russian Knights" (which is completely understandable), the keels are painted in the color of the flag of, and not the Air Force, red, blue and white stripes across the fuselage and along the front edge of the wing are made thicker.
MiG-29 "Swifts" initially had a blue and white coloring, title aerobatic team on board was not applied. Brand new, modern, red, blue and white colors with a stylized image of a bird and the inscription "Swifts" appeared in 2002
Aerobatic Team "Sky Hussars" as annoying though it may sound, its existence has been somewhat "hussar" Su-25 were transferred to the 899 th Attack Aviation Regiment.
The main impetus for the revival of the tradition of registered aircraft in the Air Force was a period of preparation for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the victory of the Russian people into a sublime Russian War of 1941-1945.
In preparation for the air show in Moscow on Poklonnaya Hill Air Force Commander (1991 — 1998 gg.) Colonel-General PS Dejnekin25gave the order to assign two strategic bombers Tu-160, participated in the parade name"Ilya Muromets".Selecting the name of the famous aircraft of the First World War, was elected not the case. Specifically, he laid the foundation for the development of strategic bombers in Russia, ahead of many of the leading world powers in this area for a couple of years.
This initiative has found a warm response in the Air Force Air Armies. Followed by the name became a bomber plane"Ivan Yarygin"betrothed to after the famous Russian fighter, multiple favorite global championships and the Olympic Games, the 1st of the best athletes of the planet, disastrously killed in a car crash.
In the coming within the Air Force began to appear new registered aircraft, dedicated to the outstanding pilots of the Russian Federation: "Misha Gromov", "Vasily Reshetnikov," "Alexander Golovanov," "Alexander Molodchy", "Vasily Senko", "Valery Chkalov"and etc. (Far Aviation)"Air Marshal fiddle", "Hero of the Russian Union of BC Grizodubova", "Vladimir Ivanov"et al (Military Transport Aviation).
September 18, 2003 there was an accident — a tragedy of the Tu-160"Misha Gromov."The crew of the Guard Lieutenant Colonel JM Deyneko (Commander), the Major Fedusenko ON (Assistant captain), the Major Kolchin AG (Navigator ship), the Major Sukhorukova CM. (Navigator-operator) to the last fought for survival of the aircraft. But at the height of 1200 m plane was quickly destroyed, and left it burning. Having done everything possible, the crew in an emergency order by the bailout left the burning bomber. The latest fighting vehicle commander left. But low height and a large vertical velocity decrease with the imposition of another explosion on board the pilots did not leave a chance to stay alive. For courage and heroism of the crew was posthumously awarded a large government awards, and Guard Lieutenant Colonel JM Deyneko was awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation (posthumously). In September 2004, on the site of the crash of Tu-160 opened a monument.
This disaster has continued a sad list of victims airships Distant Russian aviation. Back to '91 (November 2, 1915) as a result of the tragedy could be one of the first ships of disasters languid "Ilya Muromets". In the end, she died almost the entire crew of the airship: Captain DA Ozersky and two of his companions (LTC Zvegintsev and non-commissioned officer Vogt). Miraculously still alive only lieutenant saved.
In recent years, the Air Force has been revived a tradition rooted in the history of military aeronautics. Then, at the turn of the XIX / XX century, individual balloons, formed part of composition of aeronautical orders and mouth deployed in large cities, given the name designated the administrative centers of the country. Now, as 100 years ago, the air spaces of the country once again roam the airships, bearing the name of the leading cities of Russia. In service with modern Air Force aircraft are registered:"Ryazan", "Kameadows "," Tambov "," Saratov "," Chelyabinsk "," Irkutsk "," Smolensk "etc. (Distant Aviation) "Lofty Novgorodkind "," Smolensk Hero City "," Orenburg "," Pskov "etc.(Military Transport Aviation). So Makar, a sense of continuity of this glorious tradition that was revived through the years.
In the near future, many registered aircraft are taking an active part in training and combat life of the Air Force. Since the fall of 2000 the crew of the Guard lieutenant colonel Danilenko by plane number 08"Smolensk"for the first time since 1994, made a landing and taking off at the airport Machulishchy (Republic of Belarus), confirming the defense alliance 2-friendly countries. In the same year, aircraft"Smolensk"and"Irkutsk"for the first time after a decade made the flight to the North Pole with the take-off and landing on an operational airfield Tiksi. In the spring of 2006 registered airplanes"Irkutsk"and"Blagoveshchensk" completed missions to distant shores of the United States and Canada with a stopover at the airport Anadyr.
Almost all owned Distant Aviation Tu-134UBL also have their own names, they own most are named after rivers, which are placed next to the airfields dol'niki:"Volga", "Inral "," Cna "andand —"Tithe", "Meschera."
At the same time, the process of assigning aircraft to proper names also raised and front-line aircraft. So, as part of one of the air units of the 6th Army Air Force and Air Defence have come out interceptor MiG-31, tail number "08""Boris Safonov"dedicated to the memory of the famous Russian ace pilot, twice Hero of the Russian Union of BF Safonov, who died in an unequal battle at the end of May 1942 in the Arctic sky. Su-24MR bearing the number "07" of the 47 th Guards Red Borisov reconnaissance regiment named"Arseny Morozov"in addition, to its board bearing the 2-Orders of Red Banner, made the sign of the Guard and the inscription "Borisov Pomeranian." Images Orders of Suvorov, Red Banner and sign Guards, the inscription "Borisov" were applied to the left side of MiG-25RB bearing the number "28" of the same regiment.
Speaking of proper names planes, one can not forget about the "rock art" in general. And this painting flourished particularly violently during the withdrawal of Russian troops from Eastern Europe. For many fighters of the 16th Air Army, especially the MiG-23 had suffered various emblems. In most cases, a sketch was applied to the background in the form of the contour of the GDR, and themselves logo is a composition of carnivorous birds and air-to-air missiles. For objectivity's sake, it should be noted — the original plan was reinforced by occasional high-quality art of his incarnation. Well, not in the shelves and squadrons of experts.
Over time, the decoration process airplanes logos units adopted a more organized nature, which has a positive impact on the quality of symbolism. Nice example of a perfectly embodied zagadannoy and symbolism — the AN-12 with mammoths painted on the sides of the squadron, which is based in Tiksi.
In general, the squadron emblem on the sides of the fuselage of the aircraft became almost accepted. On the other hand, some excessive organization limits the vast creativity of the masses. A case where had to wash shown on the fuselage reconnaissance aircraft "bat" the GRU. Well, the army — an army, even if the Air Force.
At some distant bombers Tu-22MZ, which was once based or based on the moment in the Far East, printed images of Amur tigers. Pictures were made in the 90s and is now partly obliterated, so that tigers have become like skinny cats.
Shark's jaws are so popular in the West, in our country, after Afghanistan, not widely used, although the latter least one AN-12 with luxury teeth flying. But ever popular stars and signs of an old Guard, Russian, standard. Some Tu-22MZ kept on their own sides still "Afghan" stars — the marks of combat missions.
Asterisks in the Distant Aviation celebrated practical missile launches, performed with the aircraft, and the Tu-22MZ "launchers" star is often not applied to the fuselage, and on underwing pylons for the suspension of missiles. Also uncommon Russian symbols — flags, double-headed falcons.
According to the management of the Air Force, now there is an urgent need to find just the naming of the aircraft so-called proper names.
Evolution of registered aircraft is inextricably linked with the history of the Russian Air Force, which asks the attentive and careful study of the case of the younger generation of the country and the defense of the Fatherland.
