Search, rescue and restoration of Il-2 red 19 of 2. escadrilya 46.ShAP SF VMF that crashlanded on 25th of november 1943 after damage sustained by FLAK during attack on airfield Luostari and after it was attacked by messerschmidt. Pilot was lt. Skopincov Valeriy Mihailovich (his 3rd combat flight of 59 combat flights performed during the war)

Interestingly after this plane they also searched for and found another Il-2 (single seat) of same regiment crashlanded in summer on lake by 3. escadrilya commander kapitan Kalichev (also after attack on Luostari)

Thank you very much for the link! I remember when they first raised this aeroplane from the lake. It's great to see it flying again! I believe the single-seater is also being restored to airworthy status.

Best Regards,
