MOSCOW. March 31 (Interfax-AVN) - Russian inspectors will go on an Open Skies mission in Germany and Benelux countries aboard Russia's observation aircraft Antonov An-30B, head of the Russian National Nuclear Threat Reduction Center Sergei Ryzhkov told Interfax-AVN.
"The observation flight will be performed consistent with the Open Skies Treaty on March 31 - April 5 from the Open Skies airport in Brussels, Belgium, on a maximum range of 945 kilometers in Benelux and 1,300 kilometers in Germany," Ryzhkov said.
