As long as my legs allowed me I used to bring flowers to our memorial in Lebyazhye. We built a memorial there with all of the names there, to commemorate our friends... You know, naval pilots most often have no graves...


Some images still appear in my mind... Winter, coast of Baltic Sea... And a pilot who was running to the toilet to pee every ten minutes because of stress... Death was very close to us, not even because of Germans if the engine fails in the open sea, you are dead!


Land is land. At any time when you return, and see the shore, you feel better. When you get to the sea, all pilots shut up immediately, but everybody was quite verbose when we crossed the shoreline... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

my fave quote:

But for me I would like to take my hat in front of a Sturmovik pilot, and I won't sit until he does.

Thanks, guys!
Next one is going to be there in a week. I'll let you know.

I do get some exitement from talking with these men, and let those who never spoke before to be heard.
