I must confess I was overly unimpressed when I saw the amount of flying that took place from that carrier whilst she has been deployed, but shame on us for not having a maritime air force but thank goodness we have a silent service that can still perform multiple roles.

Don't forget this carrier is about to go into extended refit where I believe boilers, engines and flight deck are being replaced, plus it is alleged she will be converted to a conventional aircraft carrier although who will train those crews is anybody's guess.

I am still curious as to what might have been aboard that carrier when she paid a formal visit to Syria and what might have been left there?

Since the end of December 2011 the Northern Fleet sailors were carrying on combat duty in the Mediterranean. During this time, in areas of central and eastern Mediterranean, our sailors were covered several thousand miles. Every day aboard aircraft carrier group training exercises of various military units.

The gunners and soldiers survivability division, Marines and special operations units, and of course, the two wings of our squadron aircraft - fighter pilots and helicopter pilots. During the long period of Mediterranean campaign fliers of two squadrons of the Northern Fleet had almost a dozen changes of flight, with a common touch about 120 hours. It was done over a hundred landings on the deck, held on 20 training air combat and interception purposes.

Among the pilots were both very young officers, the first landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier in a long march, and the pilots, planted dozens of times on the Su-33 " Admiral Kuznetsov ", and one of them, Pavel Ivanovich Pryadko in this entry into the Mediterranean Sea was the anniversary, one hundredth landing on aircraft carrier. Out in the Atlantic Ocean means for the crew of the Russian squadron awaited the approach to their native shores. But before his return to the raid in Murmansk, ships and aircraft of the Northern Fleet is still a few maneuvers in the Atlantic Ocean.

British warship escorts Russian aircraft carrier passed UK waters



Quote:
7:42AM GMT 07 Feb 2012
The destroyer sailed alongside the 50,000-tonne Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov as it made its way north. The Portsmouth-based Type 42 warship was acting as fleet escort as it followed a carrier-led Russian task group from the Channel off south-west England to the seas off south-west Ireland.

The task group of two warships and five support ships were making their way home to the northern and Baltic fleets of the Russian navy. The images were released by the Royal Navy.

HMS Liverpool's commanding officer, Commander Colin Williams, said: ''As an island nation, it is essential for the UK to maintain a military presence in our waters.
