Military Fly-past in Moscow on Victory Day
More than 125 Russian dual-purpose and combat aircraft will take part in the military fly-past during the May 9 Victory Day celebrations in central Moscow, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Vladimir Drik told Interfax on Thursday. These include the Tu-160 and Tu-95 strategic bombers, as well as the MiG-29 fighters and the Su-25 fighter bombers, Brik explained. The MiG-29s and the Su-25s are due to fly over Red Square in the form of the figure of 65, Brik added, referring to the 65th anniversary of the Allied Victory in World War Two. The fly-past will also see an aerobatics performance by the Russian teams Strizhi, or Swifts, and Russkiye Vityazi, or Russian Warriors, Brik said.
