Barrel-rolls, skewed-loops, ‘Cuban diamonds’, Nesterov maneuvers… experience all the aerial stunts from the cockpit of a fighter jet in RT’s 360 panoramic video taken at a rehearsal for this year’s Victory-Day parade in Moscow.

Russian Defense Force aircraft have been practicing their maneuvers at Kubinka, just outside of Moscow, with some 100 helicopters and airplanes – 71 main craft and up to 40 as backup – pulling off the stunts.

A total of 17 groups will take part, from heavy and operational-tactical aircraft to long-range and military transport planes. Time intervals between the groups are preliminarily set for about 20 seconds, with aircraft flying at an altitude of between 150 and 400 meters. 

Apart from aircraft, the May 9 parade will feature last year’s sensations, such as T-14 Armata battle tanks, T-15 heavy infantry combat vehicles, Kurganets-25 light tracked armored vehicles and missile systems.

T-90 battle tanks, BTR-80 armored personnel carriers and a variety of other armored vehicles will also take part in the annual parade.
