*** RUSSIAN INSPECTORS TO GO ON OPEN SKIES MISSION IN U.S
A Russian inspection team will go on an Open Skies mission in the United States onboard a Tupolev-154M Lk-1 observation aircraft.
"The observation flight will be performed in the period from September 26 until October 1, 2016, from the Travis Open Skies airfield in California to a maximum distance of 4,250 kilometers," head of the National Nuclear Threat Reduction Center Sergei Ryzhkov told Interfax.
Open Skies missions contribute to greater openness and transparency in military activity of treaty member countries and bolster security through confidence building measures.
