Tour – Russia/Saint Petersburg – Navy Day – July 2020 – 4Aviation

Tour - Russia III

Saint Petersburg Navy Day – July 2020

Information

We all know about the annual 9 May parade over Moscow which we have visited several times. The aircraft you see there are ‘only’ from the Russian Air Force.

The Russian Navy has its own fly past on the last Sunday of July over the harbour of Saint Petersburg. During the actual flypast and rehearsals you can see about 50 navy aircraft, varying from a variety of unique Kamov helicopter designs, Il-38 May and Tu-142 Bear patrol aircraft to the MiG-29 and Flanker-family jets with a couple of Mi-17 helicopters, Su-25 Frogfoot ground attack jets and some more bits on the side.

Combine this with the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg which we have time to explore, and the simplified, and low cost, visa procedure for this lovely city we could not resist planning a 5-6 day tour. This trip is also ideal to take your partner for a relaxed few days to an exciting city.

We plan to witness a rehearsal, the actual flypast, a few Wrecks & Relics in and around town as well as some touristic sights.

Thanks to Tsungfang Tsai & Django Bruinink for allowing us to use their photos.

Itinerary

The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.

On Tuesday 21 July we will fly to Saint Petersburg and return to the Netherlands on Monday 27 July 2020.

We expect a rehearsal of the parade to be flown on Wednesday 22 and Friday 24 July. Our plan is to attend the one on Wednesday in the city and to head for Pushkin on Friday. Part of the choppers that participate in the parade operate from Pushkin. Based on experiences and preferences will we then draft a plan for the actual parade on Sunday (26 July).

Furthermore we have time to look for wrecks & relics in Saint Petersburg and Leningrad Oblast. Finally there is also time to get to know and expore the city, or the Hermitage Museum for instance.

The major advantage of a visit to this region is that an e-visa is available for 53 different countries. This is free of charge and issue within 4 days. Read all about this on this page; http://electronic-visa.kdmid.ru/spb_home_en.html
