ALSIB 2020

The Project

In 2020, the world will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II / The Great Patriotic War to honor our veterans and remember the millions of civilians who lost their lives.  The BRAVO 369 Flight Foundation is leading an international team as part of a friendship flight paying tribute and telling the history of the united effort between the United States, Russia and other Allies that led to the great victory over fascism.

ALSIB 2020 will:

  • Commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II by retracing the Alaska-Siberia (ALSIB) air route from Great Falls, Montana through western Canada and across Russia in World War II era aircraft

  • Present  the rich and undiscovered history of Lend-Lease and the Allied effort that has never been completely told  

  • Recognize the sacrifice of millions of men and women on the home front who served just as bravely and gallantly as those on the battlefields but have, literally, been forgotten

  • Produce a historically and technically accurate documentary film and book in English and Russian, Code Name: ALSIB, the complete story of Lend-Lease and the Alaska-Siberia air route

  • Work with  the Russian and United States governments to further develop the B369 air route between Alaska and Siberia into a viable commercial and general aviation trade route

  • Honor the pilots and crews who ferried and supported aircraft along the treacherous ALSIB air route from 1942 through 1945

During the past 10 years, the BRAVO 369 Flight Foundation has been the leading organization researching and telling the story of Lend-Lease and the ALSIB – America’s secret “pipeline” between Washington, DC and Moscow during World War II.  In 2015, BRAVO 369’s international team flew the entire air route from Great Falls, Montana to Krasnoyarsk, Russia to bring this story to the forefront and promote a better understanding and goodwill between the United States and Russia. It was an overwhelming success.

In the words of John F. Tefft, former U.S. Ambassador in Moscow: “Despite the current tensions in our relationship, I am confident that Americans and Russians will continue to find common cause on issues of mutual interest. And initiatives like this (BRAVO 369) serve as an important reminder that our countries can, have, and do work together. Let us commit ourselves to ensuring that this will always be the case.”
