First photo of the PLAAF aerial refueling training in Russia.
As part of the 2 Billion dollars Su-30MKK package ordered by the PLAAF on August 27th 1999, a small team of Chinese pilots was send to the Moscow Pilots School for training in 2000. Initially the training program was greeted with great fanfare, but for reasons yet unknown, there were no follow-ups.
