The exhibition is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the first Russian voyage to the Mediterranean Sea.
12 warships and auxiliary ships headed by the aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov went on the
campaign. The carrier-based aircraft on board demonstrated a high level of training and the ability to fly
during both daytime and at night.
The exhibition is a collection of photographs with explanatory notes on where, when, and under what
circumstances the photo was taken. Many of them are provided with quotes from the expedition
members. Those heartfelt words convey the atmosphere of flight and the feelings of a pilot when they
land an airplane on a fragile deck in a raging sea.
But this exhibition is dedicated not only to the hero pilots. After all, the campaign was provided by
hundreds of military personnel, and the contribution of each is necessary and valuable. In one of the
photos on the take-off field, test pilots and combat troops together in the distant 1989 year are
preparing an aircraft for the future campaign, which is still six years ahead.
