Russian Air Force aircraft due to take part in the 2016 Victory Day parade in Moscow completed a day's training in Kubinka, Odintsovsky District, Moscow Oblast, Wednesday.
The pilots of the 'Swifts' and 'Russian Knights' flight groups are set to perform acrobatic manoeuvres as part of Victory Day celebrations using Sukhoi Su-25 and Su-27 jets.
A total of 26 Russian cities will stage major parades on May 9 to mark the anniversary of the official capitulation of Nazi Germany to Soviet forces. April 28 and May 4 were announced as the rehearsal dates for the parades, followed by a full dress rehearsal on May 7, two days ahead of the commemorations.
