Russia's annual May 9 Victory Day parade will include a flight by the Il-80 "doomsday" command and control plane, which would carry Russia's top brass in the event of a nuclear war, Russia's Defense Ministry said, as cited by Reuters. The plane will take part in a Victory Day parade for the first time since 2010. The parade will also feature supersonic fighters and Tu-160 strategic bombers.
