OTH-585 Sukhoi Su-15 Flagon Soviet Air Defence Fighter-Interceptor. Airtight Frontier! book

Hardcover book. Collector's edition with higher quality coated paper. 160 pages, format 205 x 260 mm. Text in Russian. Photos, pictures.

April 20, 1978. The Korean Boeing 707 crosses the border of the USSR in the Murmansk region thousands of miles away off course. Since the plane did not respond to requests from the ground and did not react to signals of interceptor, weapons were applied against the offender. Padded missile tore off part of its wing and wounded fatally two passengers. Boeing miraculously made a forced landing on the ice of a frozen lake.
Five years later, the situation repeated itself. September 1, 1983 Boeing 747 of the same Korean company KAL, deviated from the route 600 km and violated the Soviet border in the Far East. There was every reason to believe that this is a reconnaissance flight. Air Defense fighters were lifted to intercept the intruder. Since all attempts to contact the crew and even the gun's warning firing was ignored by intruder, pilot of interceptor received the order to open fire. Damaged by missile airplane fell into the sea, none of the 269 passengers survived...
Both Boeings were shot down by fighter-interceptor Su-15 designed by Sukhoi Design Bureau. These fighters were guarding the borders of the USSR over a third of a century.
In this new book of well-known historians of aviation you will find comprehensive information about the establishment, the service and combat use of this epic plane, regarding which the Hero of the Soviet Union, Air Marshal Sawicki once said: "If Pavel Sukhoi happened to make only this plane, even so he should be called the great aircraft designer!"
