For the first time in 11 years of the Air Show, President Vladimir Putin did not attend the opening of the event. This year's air show was opened by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev .

Visitors will be able to see in action such aerobatic teams as " Russian Knights" on Su -27, "Swifts " on the MiG-29," Falcons of Russia " on Su-27 and "Golden Eagles" on Mi -28N .
