In Kamchatka begins grandiose reconstruction Elizovskiy airport. Amount of work — approx. 12 bln., From Vladivostok sea sent heavy construction equipment. Going to revive the former "military" band, which is now abandoned, to extend it to 3500 m, extend up to 45 m
In my memory of the Kamchatka renovation was in 1978, when the port began to take the Tu-154 (previously could not), and IL-62 (in 1980). Before that, we were flying to Petropavlovsk only in the IL-18 and Tu-104. And once, seventh-graders, parents have even sent to Khabarovsk on the IL-14, with two landings (in Okha and Komsomolsk).
