It's a strange coincidence, during my world tour I arrived in Holy Russia yesterday, election day. A rather short flight: less than 580 nm, I already did 2x more in one flight. Not being restricted by the fuel, I just tried to beat speed records. At the departure (PASY), bad weather, 3°C, but already 20 knots of tailwind Above the clouds at FL120 climbing to FL200. Love the way ASP4 renders a plain, soft cloud blanket Somewhere above the Bering Sea, I officially fly over Russian territorial waters Ground speed of 335-340 kts, helped by quite strong tailwinds The view is impressive while approcahing the TOD. I will circle around the Koriakski and Avatchinski volcanoes by the left, to align on the assigned runway 36R (ILS approach) Intercepting the ILS over Mokhovaya Bay. An IL-76 Aeroflot is holding while I am in short final Military traffic in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski. A huge Mi-26 on the right, and Mi-8s aligned on the left Reaching the taxiway seems never ending: RWY 36R is 3400m long which takes 5 mn to run at 20 kts. An Il-76 from Irkutsk is forced to a go-around, I can almost hear the Russian insults... Finally... Heading left, for a rather specific taxi which crosses a forest to join the terminals The only signs of Western liveries are freight: Fedex, UPS period. Appart from that, Il76, An74, Aeroflot, Gazprom, Zitotrans... No doubt, we are now in Russia ! Now I'm planning the next flight to the West.
