The action symbolizes the victory over fascism. The Yak-52 and Yak-54 planes were flown by the commander and pilots of the Barsa aerobatic team, which is based in Surgut.
For the first time, such an event was held in Russia in Ugra in 2019. Then on May 9, six Yak aircraft flew over Surgut with 12 portraits of participants in the Great Patriotic War as part of the Immortal Regiment in the Sky action. In 2020, the planes flew over Khanty-Mansiysk, Surgut, near Nizhnevartovsk and Megion. The organizer of the action is the Federation of Airplane Sports of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug.
