In 2015, to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, the BRAVO 369 flight team successfully completed a re-creation flight of the entire Alaskan-Siberian air route (ALSIB). This dangerous, 6,000 mile route is virtually unknown, but was part of the massive U.S. Lend-Lease Program, providing U.S. Allies, including the Soviet Union, with military aircraft and other desperately needed supplies to defeat the Nazis.
The BRAVO 369 and Rusavia flight teams, flew the original ALSIB route from Great Falls, Montana through Siberia to Moscow in historic, vintage WWII aircraft. The culmination of this massive undertaking, made possible through the cooperation of the U.S., Canada, and Russia, will become a documentary, Code Name: ALSIB, bringing history alive by showcasing the personal stories from 75 years ago and following the modern-day pilots, both American and Russian, to fly this route since World War II.
ALSIB 2015 paved the way for our next flight project, ALSIB 2020.
