The point of the meeting was scheduled in the center of Novosibirsk at 13.30 and about 9 o'clock in the morning we went out under its own power from Tomsk. Vehicles on the road is. The area around the Marsh. Traditional wheel Zauralskiy right, photographed driver.
Closer to Novosibirsk begins bypass — twice wider than the M53 highway.
The point of the meeting was scheduled right in the center of
Novosibirsk, near the House of Officers. Nearby is a colorful church, her left circus building — for example, in Tomsk with Russian circus times not — broken here and there at first the 1980s to build a new one, but not in time, but in Novosibirsk and other industrial towns have (Kemerovo , Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, etc.). Tomsk — institute city …
Eustace, Alex, a meeting point — House Officers, Novosibirsk.
Here in this van and drove us to the press tour.
We cross the Ob — rushing to the West.

"Comrades, bloggers, welcome to the area 562 th Air Base. Please pass on the instruction of personnel in front of live fire."
On this day, there were flies on the ground with the firings. Flew several crews and Mi-8 and Mi-24P. Firing of cannon carried out installations and NURami. At the briefing, as expected, the overall situation has been brought, landmarks, etc. On the walls are many fascinating posters with numbers — about them in the bonus section of the report for connoisseurs.
This Garmin (GPS) … About GLONASS I forgot to ask, but in general it is because we have been massively already promised by 2010, probably because you just need to wait. Thigh pads with records set.
Briefing held the deputy commander of the air base number 562 Colonel O.A.Panin. The board lot of fun for the layman — is a familiar name — Kemerovo, Barnaul …
The officers of the airbase — pilots, navigators, and technology.
Siberian bloggers and journalists "Vesti-Novosibirsk".
Let's go fly! The aircraft on the field is a different story — the truth is not very detailed.
Nearby is the civilian airport Tolmachevo — the landing is a passenger liner. Unfortunately, the inexperience I missed the landing of AN-124 "Ruslan" …
At this Mi-8 and we were comped a couple of Mi-24P marschrute on the landfill and above the ground. Asked — why sooty? The answer — machines are stored in air, winter — the cold hard wash. In the summer car wash often and they always look dressed up. Another question — how to upgrade equipme
nt? The answer — there is an update, but first from the western districts. Details were given, but I did not realize there helicopters most new releases. But all the flying machines in excellent condition — in fact, this can be seen on the outside and inside.
The first to go in the direction of the landfill "crocodiles" — Mi-24P. The landfill is located approximately 20 miles from the air base to the south. As it turned out, some friends have been there in years of service.
Let me finish on this first part of our report. We only teach, and therefore may not be very informative comes out. I apologize. In the second part — actually flying and shooting … Next — the airfield, barracks and a bonus part for real connoisseurs …
March 6, 2012 held the first in Siberia press tour on 562 th Army Air Corps air base in Novosibirsk. In the first part of our report we are told that it was before the flight. And now — the flies!
Now a day flights ground and flew many of the Mi-24P air base. Mi-24P aircraft number 26 yellow.
Apart from the Mi-24P participated in the shooting and Mi-8 helicopters with blocks of NUR.
The Mi-8 board Yellow number 67 has been allocated for a group of bloggers and journalists. The last production before departure.
We were loaded on the Mi-8 with the hull number 67 of yellowish color. Plenty of space. I did not realize only 1 to inexperience — not all the windows revealed, and pictures through the glass does not come out very well. Because shooting in the air from other photographers, I think, should be much better.
The Mi-8 — adjacent to us in the parking lot of helicopters.
Mi-24P board 26 yellow steer on take-off site. All helicopters soared from certain sites, which moved under its own power. On the same grounds, and later carried out a helicopter landing.
The crew and passengers ready for take-off!
Mi-24P aircraft number 26 may — if he had not yet gone off.
Mi-24P aircraft number 25, getting ready to take off — we accompanied this helicopter and helicopter Mi-24P aircraft number 41 yellow. At the bottom, in the frame — a piece of suspension assemblies of our helicopter.
And behind us are going to take off the Mi-8, which stood next to us in the same row. Shooting through ilyuminator — zamylen frame.
Up in the air, and not alone — followed by a pair of Mi-24P. It should be noted that the surge has passed without incident — packages are not useful to anyone — regardless of some maneuvers in the air feelings were quite normal and expected. Flying a helicopter is not creepy!
The two "crocodile" go to work. Unforgettable spectacle in fact!
Mi-24P aircraft number 25 yellow — driven by our couples. Shooting against the sun and through ilyuminator — that could extend "photoshop", that is.
A pair of Mi-24P close to the polygon.
Mi-24P board Number 25 — the slave.
E-24P board the number 41 — the presenter.
Something for which all and was started — shooting. Despite the warning that at the moment start shooting — volley NURami I overslept. He was alone and at the hearing — 2-4 missiles on board. It is seen as sypyatsya sleeve. The Mi-24P twin gun, caliber 30 mm — a massive and very effective means of defeating the infantry and lightly armored vehicles. Cannon shot longer and still managed to make one frame. Affected by the lack of experience in photography and helicopters and shooting in general. Follow-up time will be better!
Our unaccompanied and organizer of the tour — Colonel Yury Sivokhin.
So we came back. The flight lasted less than 40 minutes.
