Re: IL-2 and AA collison

Indeed. Hard to say what outfit, given his advanced age and weight (for the era; most combat GI's were barely in their 20's and had to be fit). Probably in his late thirties, and possibly a retread...

Re: IL-2 and AA collison

That second photo isn't Red Army captives; rather; conscripted Eastern European and Mongolian troops in Wehrmacht uniforms. They wouldn't fare well once turned over to their countrymen....... Ivan...

Re: Returning member, changing priorities

I wish I could remember all the ephemera I learned when my Dad was working on his A's; I think I learned to read from Floyd Clymer. At one time I could spout off chapter and verse on the running...

Returning member, changing priorities

Can't remember what my old username was, too many changes in service, etc. Was last here farting around with a '56 Fairlane tudor that I eventually gave up on. Currently farting around with a '63 1/2...
