It is served by medium-sized airliners. The airport is situated next to the Volga River.

History

During the Cold War Tunoshna was a key interceptor aircraft base. It was home to 415th Fighter Aviation Regiment PVO (415 IAP), 3rd Air Defence Corps, Moscow Air Defence District. The regiment arrived at Tunoshna from Audun in China in March 1953.[2] The regiment flew the MiG-15, then the MiG-17F, and then the Sukhoi Su-9 (Fishpot) in the 1960s.[3] The regiment replaced it in 1979 with the MiG-23P (Flogger-G).[3] This aircraft served at Tunoshna during the 1980s and 1990s.[4] The 415 IAP was decommissioned in 1994[citation needed] and the MiG-23s were sent to Rzhev.

Terminals

The passenger terminal (with an area of 1000 m2) is designed to handle 180 domestic or 100 international passengers per hour. The cargo terminal (with an area of 833 m2) is designed to handle up to 150 tonnes of cargo per day. The airport complex entered service in 2002 and was reconstructed in 2013.

Accidents and incidents

On 6 September 1994, the MiG-23UB crashed into terrain due to loss of control.

On 7 September 2011, the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash occurred, killing nearly the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Kontinental Hockey League professional ice hockey team. A Yak-Service Yak-42, carrying the team to a game in Minsk, Belarus crashed on take-off from Tunoshna, killing 44 of the 45 occupants.[9][10] The plane crashed and broke up approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the end of the runway, at the Volga River. The cause was determined to be pilot error, when one of the two pilots incorrectly applied braking during takeoff, attributed to a lack of training in the aircraft.
