The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.
On Thursday 27 June we will fly to Moscow (possibly making one stop on our way there) and return to the Netherlands on Wednesday 3 July 2019.
We will then head for ARMY on 3 days. Friday, Saturday and Sunday (28, 29 and 30 June) are expected to be public days.
During these days you can visit the 3 different locations (the Patriot Exhibition and Convention Centre terrain, the Alabino training ground and Kubinka air base).
On Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 July we will return to Kubinka to capture the departure of (a large part of) the participants. For now we will do this from outside the fence. Last year we only went to Kubinka on Monday after the event. That was an awesome experience, but we found out that some of the aircraft do not leave until Tuesday. Therefore we plan to go to Kubinka on Tuesday as well this year.
We have deliberately chosen a somewhat longer tour to give you the option to see and do a lot. ARMY consists of several items and it is very interesting to have a look at Alabino for instance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrAf6euIcVA).
The museum in Monino is still open and certainly worth a visit (on Friday, Saturday or Sunday). For those that are interested in visiting this museum during the tour we can organise combined transportation. We can discuss arrangements and payment while we are in Moscow. The city of Moscow is very beautiful and interesting. Planning a day to venture into the city is recommended as well.
During the tour you will stay in 2 different hotels. One hotel is within the city (very close to a metro station). The other is closer to Kubinka. This enables you to visit Moscow as well as not being confronted by the heavy traffic in Moscow on all days.
For a visit to Russia visa is required. You have to apply for this visa yourself, 4Aviation will however provide the visa support letter. Please refer to the information the Russian Embassy provides in your own country.
