Two Russian planes landed at Venezuela’s main airport on Saturday carrying troops


Reporter Javier Mayorca wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the first plane carried Vasily Tonkoshkurov, chief of staff of the ground forces, adding the second was a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of material.

An Ilyushin IL-62 passenger jet and an Antonov AN-124 military cargo plane left for Caracas on Friday from Russian military airport Chkalovsky. The cargo plane left Caracas on Sunday afternoon.

The flights carried officials who arrived to “exchange consultations,” wrote Russian government-owned news agency Sputnik, which quoted an unnamed source at the Russian embassy.

A Reuters witness saw what appeared to be the passenger jet at the Maiquetia airport on Sunday.

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE U.S. Geological Survey Thursday, February 21, 2019, 12:53 PM AKST (Thursday, February 21, 2019, 21:53 UTC)

52°49’20” N 169°56’42” W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

Weakly elevated surface temperatures observed in mostly cloudy satellite data over the past 24 hours. No activity was detected in regional seismic or infrasound data.

The most recent explosion of Cleveland Volcano occurred on January 9, 2019. Cleveland explosions are normally short duration and only present a hazard to aviation in the immediate vicinity of the volcano. Larger explosions that present a more widespread hazard to aviation are possible, but are less likely and occur less frequently.

Local seismic and infrasound data at Cleveland have been unavailable since January 26, 2019. This restricts AVO’s ability to rapidly detect an explosive eruption. AVO is able to monitor the volcano for signs of eruptive activity with satellite, lightning, and regional seismic and infrasound data.
