Saint Valentine’s Day in the Edge of Space

On February 14 people in many world countries celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day and according to the tradition make love confessions, surprise their beloved with some romantic gifts or just put everything aside to spend time with their beloved.

But deep within their hearts many brave men want to conquer their ladies’ hearts by performing real exploits! For instance this year Saint Valentine’s Day at Sokol airbase in Nizhny Novgorod will be remembered for a very long time. Dmitry, the hero of our story decided to make an unforgettable present to his sweetheart Evgeniya – an Edge of Space flight onboard MiG-29 jet fighter.

Despite the fact that flight schedule was very tight we managed to arrange two flights on that remarkable date! Dmitry was to fly first while his beloved was the next to conquer the Edge of space.

Within the shortest time possible due to the teamwork of all specialists the airfield was decorated with candles, hearts, various romantic stuff and a huge 25-meters banner that was to attract the girl’s attention who was performing breathtaking aerobatics in the skies and contained words of marriage proposal. Such proposal in the middle of breathtaking aerobatics couldn’t leave her indifferent and she was extremely impressed and naturally her answer upon the landing was “yes”. Frantic adrenaline of the flight and special atmosphere of this event made the day unforgettable for our heroes!

We are very proud that we successfully put into life such idea since it was the first-in-history marriage proposal made in the Edge of space.

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!
