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.
To start with, there is a little museum about the garrison creation history.
It has all begun as far back as in times of Imperial Russia. Turn your attention to the uniform of pilots; everyone has their own kind of outfit as the universal air uniform had not been created yet and first pilots were raised from different military forces departments.
