EDMONTON — The Bravo 369 Flight Foundation, an American non-profit organization dedicated to Educational research, and RUSAVIA, a Russian aviation parts company, are celebrating the 70th year anniversary of the end of World War II by recreating a journey once secretly used to bring supplies, military aircraft, and other equipment to Allied forces from 1942-1945. They are using three restored World War II planes to accomplish this feat.
"I want to mention too the Alaska-Siberia 2015 flight that took place just recently to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory [in World War II]. Pilots from Russia and the United States" of America, flying planes from the war years, followed this long and dangerous route that linked our countries during those years, and are now here in Zhukovsky. This undertaking made a worthy contribution to preserving the memory of the war and the courage and heroism of those who fought Nazism. Thank you to everyone who took part in this wonderful project".
