Experience the sights of Russian military aviation as they practice for Moscow’s Victory Day Parade Celebration.
The Victory Day Parade marks the day the Allies were victorious over the Germans in World War II.
The annual parade marks the Allied victory in World War II at the Eastern Front, on the same day as the signing of the German act of capitulation to the Allies in Berlin, at midnight of 9 May 1945 (Russian time).
As per tradition, 26 other Russian major cities (Sevastopol and Kerch in the disputed Crimea included) held their parades on that day, and joint civil-military parades were hosted by 50 other towns and cities nationwide.” – Wikipedia
Note: The fly over was canceled this year due to bad weather on the day of the parade.
