    ========
    It’s a pity to congratulate Daddy - he’s gone ... Since 1944, first at the Black Sea Fleet, then at the Baltic Sea as a navigator of the Naval Aviation, then again fate abandoned the Black Sea Fleet. I started with pawns, then Tu-2, then Il-28 ...

    The M-9 had the world's first cannon armament on a seaplane. The M-9 was also equipped with a Ruza-type radio station. On September 17, 1916, on the M-9 seaplane for the first time in the world with a passenger on board, Lieutenant Y. Nagursky performed Nesterov's loop and this record was recorded as a world record.

    Although waterfowl, today I will raise the cup for the youngest and most heroic part of naval aviation - deck, ship-based aviation.
    I recall Timur Apakidze, Nikolai Edush, Alifanov, friend (sidekick) Vitya Karaush ...
    Who is not - a blessed memory to them, forever gone into heaven ...
    And to those who are alive - health, happiness, GOOD LUCK!
    Well, and young people - a huge sky "MILLION FOR MILLION" !!!
    Sincerely yours. KAA.

    By the beginning of the WWI in terms of the total number of aircraft, Russia was in the top three. Russian pilots in WWI were some of the best

    Well, maybe I'll wait until the end of my life. what will the Supreme Commander answer .... who in March 2011 "dispersed the MRA and coastal strike aircraft

    Well, MRA was dispersed earlier in the late 90s, but on the whole, the Navy’s commander-in-chief also dispersed MA in order to maintain the regular number of ship personnel. And now the remnants of MA are replenished only at the expense of the parts where the Su-30SM are, And the rest is all out of breath.
