On Monday 24 April we left the hotel early for the fairly short drive to Nizhin. After a check at the main gate we immediately drove to the flightline. We were blessed with blue skies all day, all week actually, and started photographing the aircraft of the Emergency Unit on the flightline and in the hangar. Just before our arrival a Mi-8 had departed, there were no further movements that day. In the afternoon we drove south to Mirgorod, our main target for the next day.
