Moscow, Oct 14 The crews of new Su-34 bombers of Russia's Eastern Military District have conducted flights to the stratosphere in supersonic mode, a spokesperson said on Friday.


"The pilots completed the exercises using the air navigation; they practiced taking off and landing the aircraft at the airport during the night time," said Alexander Gordeyev, spokesman for the military district, the biggest of Russia's four operational strategic commands.

He said the military exercises were held in the framework of the final inspection in 2016, during which they conducted tactical flights, bombing the ground targets of a conditional enemy, Xinhua news agency reported.
