Two Russian Tu-160 heavy strategic bombers, an An-124 airlift jet aircraft and an Il-62 airliner returned from Caracas in Venezuela to Engels Air Force Base in Russia, as shown in footage released on Saturday.

“I would like to thank you again for such warm hospitality. As I said in my speech earlier, your warm climate is not just from the warmth of nature but also the warmth in your hearts,” Long-Range Aviation of Russian Aerospace Forces Commander Lieutenant-General Sergei Kobylash said.

The crews practiced navigating in local climate conditions and participated in joint drills with their Venezuelan counterparts.

The Russian aircraft and crews made their way from Russia to Maiquetia “Simon Bolivar” International Airport on December 10.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
