> A WW2 Il-2 Ground attack aircraft that was pulled from a swamp was restored to flying condition in Russia. Just love old machines like this and it’s a good to see pieces of history like this working again, even if the purpose of the machine is inhuman. Maybe even more so in that case,   Read More …
