The culmination of the show was the flight of MiG-29, Sukhoi-25 and Sukhoi-27 jets forming the figure 100, and also the flight of nine Sukhoi-25 jets that turned the sky into the colours of the Russian state flag.
Thousands of spectators saw the flights of combat, training and heavy cargo planes and helicopters. Pilots from the UK, Italy, Poland, France and Finland took part in the show alongside Russian crews. The spectators enjoyed watching the flights of old aircraft dating back to the first half of last century.
President Vladimir Putin visited Zhukovsky on Saturday. He congratulated the pilots on the occasion of the anniversary and announced that the Russian Air Force would receive over 600 new planes and 1,000 helicopters before 2020.
