North Fleet aircraft make new flights in Arctic region

North Fleet planes had another Arctic flight on September 2 and 3, a fleet source told Interfax.

"The flights were made in line with the annual training plan of the North Fleet," the source said.

Tupolev Tu-142MK anti-sub planes flew over the Barents and Laptev Seas "in order to maintain the operative regime in the Arctic region," the source said.

"The crews successfully accomplished the mission. On-flight tests of new radio-electronic equipment and weaponry systems proved their high efficiency," he said.

The flights strictly complied with international agreements and Russian bilateral treaties with foreign states, the source noted.
