          Ah, there was a beautiful woman - this test pilot Marina Lavrentievna Popovich!

          It is a pity that life is not eternal and that the "Soviet generation" is relentlessly going to heaven!

          Our most sincere condolences to the family and friends, friends, comrades and girlfriends of Marina Lavrentievna Popovich!

            Tatyana, you can beat me, but then the women were more beautiful. Judging by my mother, she’s 1942 of the year. Sorry, there is no screen photo. No, I'm lying, there is one thing. True, it is somehow inconvenient to insert ... If not difficult, remind me in another topic.

        Volodya, I’m shocked, because it’s not just people who are leaving, the era in which everything was leaving is leaving! and there was more good than bad ... And yet, it was well said in our post-Soviet film, "He Left the Way of the Flowers" ......

    Military Review, thank God, has ceased to put asterisks-pluses to such news. But here is the place for the cons. I would give my minus for this and any similar news as a sign of regret about the loss. Just the case when you do not want to write, but only silently express condolences or grief.

    A strange situation in our country with education.
    We really recognize people after death. Why do not their works go to schools where these DOSAAF analogues are? It turns out that this piece of shit Buzov knows half the country, and who is the test pilot Marina Popovich .......... ........................ I’m even afraid to guess who will answer this question

    She combined everything at once:WOMAN, PILOT, POET.
    Entering the institute, he wrote an essay on a free topic on one of the chapters of her book, "Life is an Eternal Rise." And I did not think that after ten years being on a business trip in Star City I would see her with my own eyes.

    Legend Woman. 102 world records in the most dangerous profession. You just think about it! It brought glory, honor and respect to the country. The whole world bowed before her. Madame MiG! Not every peasant can do it. I know by hearsay that I myself am a pilot in the past. And her death is like breaking news. A shame!!! The girls who entered the Krasnodar VVAUL did indeed equal her. My grandmother was a "night witch." She served in the regiment with Raskova. I understand that the draw of football is an important event, but it should not overshadow the memory of a great man.
