    I understand when the street, but an active combat aircraft ...
    Yes, the eternal memory of the heroes defending the fatherland in different regions, but not everything should be appropriate.
    The pilots are superstitious people, and Oleg Peshkov’s Su-shku was shot down not in battle, but by a shot in the back when they returned to base.

        And how many of our flyers died in Afghanistan and other local wars - why now and only one?
        Yes, because "in trend", no matter how blasphemous it sounds. And the request in the letter "on behalf of the reserve officers of the Lipetsk garrison in December last year" is thoughtless and soulless.

        Oleg Peshkov’s souk was shot down not in battle, but with a shot in the back when he returned to base.
        But what about a battle for a front-line bomber? He died during a combat mission.

        Tu 95 MS bear the names of large cities of Russia, for example, at the Ukrainka air base in the Amur Region, the village of Seryshevo in the former 79 TBAP of the Red Star Order, flight number 59 is named Blagoveshchensk, this is the second squadron, and in the neighboring regiment 182 Tbap, or as we called it a tag (military unit 15 ***) there is a board Irkutsk, I don’t remember the side number. Those 160 usually give the names of outstanding pilots, military leaders Taran, Reshetnikov, etc.

    Correct solution. Every day, the pilot, visiting the airfield, will remember a friend.

    The main thing is that this name would be the last one assigned in connection with the death of the pilot.

    I think that the assignment of the Hero title to our dead pilot, in this case, is politicized, which devalues ​​the Hero title. Yes, my opinion goes against the general purpose, but the way it is.

      I’m also afraid to say this, but I agree.

      But didn’t you think that the wife of the pilot with the little children was left alone with the pilot? And the posthumously assigned to her husband the title of Hero of Russia will somehow ease their life? (cons are not mine)

        The pilot was a participant in the war, it is hard to believe that his wife and children would be left without benefits.

        I feel sorry for the pilot, like his family.
        But you can give another example of a feat. For example, someone deliberately sacrifices his life, covering up the departure of his comrades.

        And the pilot bombed the banana republic in the absence of enemy missile defense forces, the fact that he was shot down almost by accident, no one knew that the Turks would brand.
        The value of the highest award is that it can be obtained only for an exceptional feat and not everyone has it and will have it.

        Now, for example, the Nobel Prize is already being criticized, this is not the same prize as before, since both Obama and the Hunchback received it.

        It is difficult to write such an opinion, since a hail of minuses will fall on me because I am such a scoundrel.

    If you call the plane by the name of the pilot, then there will be a short memory of this hero pilot, if a street in your hometown or in any city of Syria is called, this is another matter - this is for centuries, and so ...
