Russia's air force has been celebrating its centenary in spectacular style in the skies over the Moscow region. A three-day display will see national and foreign aviation aces perform death-defying stunts. More than a hundred planes and helicopters are taking part in the event, including Russia's latest state-of-the-art fighter, the T-50.

The show also includes restored planes from the First and the Second World Wars. The famed Russian Knights and the Swifts will be soaring in the skies over the weekend. The Kremlin recently made the military a top priority - with a vow to spend over 120 billion dollars upgrading the air force over the next few years.
