Title: MiG-3 and Vayenga's reindeers
Post by: Massimo Tessitori on August 26, 2014, 07:53:47 AM
A MiG-3 of  2 GSAP/VVS-SF at Vayenga airport in 1942.  
Particularly noticeable are the Lapps with their reindeer helping the VVS ground crew. Sleighs were used on the unsnowed ground too. The objects on the canisters look like bombs, probably for bombers SB that were in the 72 SAP; this SAP got Pe-2 as well since July 1942.
