Russian warplanes carried out military drill on a busy road.

The military blocked the road for hours and practiced landings and takeoffs on a road specially designed for aircraft landing and takeoff in case of war.

Drivers waited for hours saw low altitude flying Su-25 attack aircraft, Su-30 and Su-35 fighter jets, MiG-31 interceptors, and various cargo planes.

The roads are built for assisting airforce deployments during war and in peacetime, they can be used as emergency landing strips for commercial flights. When there is no emergency the road are used for normal traffic.
