Soviet Hurricane + pilot found after over 60 years


I wonder how many planes there are still to be found in Russia.

May he finally be burried properly so he can be left in peace...

RIP Tovarish

Extremely well preserved corpse, but then again the Hurri did crash in a bog and bogs are well known for their preservation of corpses. At least his body has been found so he can be buried properly now.
Bloody violent impact, as can be imagined, the text with the images says he was killed by "strongest kick to a control panel of the plane" which presumably means the control panel of the Hurri caved in on impact and powerdrived itself into the poor guys stomach. Not a nice way to go...

Saying about the preservation of items, you've only got to look at this old girl:

To see how well things can be preserved and eventually restored. Fifty years trapped in a glacier hundreds of feet under ice, and after nine years of care and TLC, she's back in the air as 'Glacier Girl' :up:
