Rising Sun in the Edge of Space

Japanese tourists continue showing great interest to Russian aerospace adventures.

This week we have arranged three Edge of Space flights for gusts from the Land of the Rising Sun.

And even despite the fact that at first the weather was not quite good (actually it is not a problem for MiG-29 UB all-weather jet fighter) and there was sheeting rain during the first take-off it neither spoilt the impressions of the flight for our guests nor them from enjoying the flight.

A bit later the weather improved and breathtaking higher aerobatics in clear after-rain skies impressed not only our sky conquerors but everyone watching the flight. Besides two of our guests were married couple coming to the airbase together with their 2-years old son who watched his mother and father performing magnificent aerobatics onboard our jet fighter. By the way both mother and father felt well after the flight and were very happy.

Have a look at our photo report and feel inspired!



News about flights on MiG-29:

On April 12 we celebrate World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day. 56 years ago on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin performed first spaceflight proving that there is nothing impossible.

On this day we congratulate not only those dealing with aerospace industry directly but either usual aviation and cosmonautics fans.

Last March our guests from different countries of the world – Japan, Italy, Canada, Australia and Bulgaria – visited “Sokol” airbase and fulfilled their unforgettable flights to the Edge of Space on MiG-29 jet fighter.

See our new big photo gallery of the March flights.

Vegitel Company successfully arranged two Edge of Space flights for a couple from Switzerland.

Despite the fact that occupation of a pilot is considered to be for men only we try to disprove this prejudice.

The ladies keep pace with the men!
