Sorry about the delay, Hanski, but I was on vacation (and will be 8) damn good [= sunny and hot] weather in this part of Finland...).hmononen wrote:Although we are here sidetracking from WWII: do you know details of this incident?
This incident has been described in Suomen Ilmailuhistoriallinen Lehti [Finnish Aviation History Magazine] some years ago but I don't have it with me now. If you are interested in try to borrow these magazines from library (:roll: too bad if you are not living in Finland...).
Yes, actually so it was.hmononen wrote:I understand it was a not a proper landing or forced landing, but a question of the strayed MiG-15 having run out of fuel and the pilot then bailing out with his ejection seat. The incident was never covered in public by Finnish media, and the wrecked aircraft as well as the pilot were returned in silence.
