During the flight, Vladimir Putin observed the actions of this Be-200 that was also suppressing fires. This plane carries a name of Ivan Sukhomlin (the legendary test pilot, Hero of Soviet Union). The well-known test pilot during WW2 without permission ran on front. For it it was deprived by ranks of the major, but have left the assistant to the commander of a regiment. It was, perhaps, unique case when the private soldier held such post. More than 200 operational flights, 7 enemy aircraft shot down.
