On August 12th, 1912 a document was signed that marked the beginning of the first air force of the Russian Empire. Later this date was used as the basis for holidays celebrating aviation: in the Soviet Union the Air Fleet Day has been celebrated on August 18th since 1931, in 1992 it was moved to the third Sunday of August, and since 2006 the Air Force Day is celebrated on August 12th.
