Tactical bomber crews of the Baltic Fleet Naval Aviation practiced air refueling

In the course of planned training flights the Su-24M tactical bomber crews of the Baltic Fleet Naval Aviation practiced air refueling over Kaliningrad region.

The Su-24M aircraft were refueled in pairs and solo day and night by the aerial tanker Il-78.

To conduct air refueling pilots of the aircraft must follow the tanker at the distance of ten meters at the speed of 550-600 kilometers per hour. Air refueling is one of the difficult elements of flight training.

Air refueling allows the Su-24M bombers performing tasks far away from the home base.
