In Ukraine, Crimea, not so far from Sevastopol, in the village of Kacha lots of different air fleet species draw their duty. They are amphibian aircrafts BE-12, military cargo planes AN-26, search-and-rescue helicopters KA-27PS as well as antisubmarine KA-27PL ones. And though many of them are 40 odd years old, they are battle-ready night and day and eager to attain any combat task in the territory of the Black Sea, and, in particular, Crimea.

    Well done. These planes are not built for comfort, so flight crews are really dedicated to their jobs.

    Fantastic photos, really interesting.

    Never seen so much equipment crammed into one plane as in that seaplane.

    Having spent my childhood in Europe waiting to be attacked and enslaved by the Red hordes, or fried by a Russian nuke, it is fascinating to see up close the equipment that would have helped to accomplish this.

    Sad
    Everything in the former Soviet space is outdated and obsolete; lots and lots of ancient equipment from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
    And militarization, my God! I grew up in a former eastern European satellite state, but that much emphasis on the military like in the exCCCP… unbelievable!
