“Russian aviation company” is preparing to fly the legendary route “Alaska-Siberia”. During the Great Patriotic War the US supplied the USSR herewith lend-lease. Memorable event is timed to the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory. To this date the re-enactors of the company also plan to restore a number of vintage aircraft. The project was approved in the Federal Air Transport Agency and the Defense Ministry of Russia.

One of the aircraft, which will be restored – a Soviet MiG-3, called by fascists “air tank”. The plane was shot down in a dogfight near Murmansk in September 1941. He made a hard landing and miraculously remained virtually intact.

Rare aircrafts will make a flight from the USA to Russia by Krasnoyarsk airway “AlSib” in 2015.
