Gorelovo (also Annino) was an air base in Leningrad Oblast, Russia located 23 km southwest of Saint Petersburg, located 10 km west of Pulkovo Airport. Today it has only 100 stored Mi-8 helicopters and one active An-26. It may have been named Gorelovo during the Cold War and renamed to Annino in the early 1990s.
