There was article, in year 1991 about activity of soviet airforce from estonia during winter war:intelligence (Soviet losses in Estonia were reported to Finland counting the plane wrecks around the airfields)
Evald Laasi: N.Liidu Eestis asuva lennuväe tegevusest Talvesõjas. Looming 8/1991.
There, based on estonian police papers (ERA.1.7.157) number of forced landings/crashes in Estonia is given as:
Code: Select all
19.12.39 - 01.01.40 9 2 5 - 02.01.40 - 15.01.40 4 9 3 3 16.01.40 - 29.01.40 9 5 3 4 30.01.40 - 12.02.40 2 - - - 13.02.40 - 26.02.40 9 22 4 5 27.02.40 - 11.03.40 8 3 4 -
and also some accidents are listed (in italic – my cross-checking naval units with Petrov/Tirkeltaub):
21.12.1939 15:00 SU bomber made forced landing in Lilienbach (east side of Narva). One of four members had light head wound.
Petrov: 1 DB-3 (1.mtap) near Rakvere – but it's much more to the west.
27.12.1939 one plane made forced landing in Ridala district (south of Haapsalu) in Sinalepa airbase. Plane was totally destroyed, 3 crew members died.
Petrov: 25.12.1939 1 SB (10.ab) 45 km to south from Haapsalu near Vigalo (Vigala?) . Plane destroyed, crew unhurt.
Vigala is much more to the east (but ca 45 km from Haapsalu). Even considering possible typo in date, probably not same planes.
01.01.1940 one plane fell down in western Estonia (Piirsalu district, forest Seljaküla). 3 crew members died.
12.01.1940 15:30 3 soviet fighters landed ca 20 km to the west from Narva. One has hits in 4 places, another had 2 hits and 3rd had no hits. Reason for landing: out of fuel and loss of orientation.
