Victory Banner and the capitulation act of Germany were delivered to Moscow on this legendary aircraft at the 9 of May 1945.
This masterpiece, manufactured in the Soviet Union under an American license and nicknamed Duglas, was one of the most versatile and useful aircraft of the Great Patriotic.
Originally purchased for the Civil Air Fleet, during the war Li-2 was widely used not only as a military freighter (in all respects surpassing than German Ju.52), but also as a night bomber as part of long-range aircraft and landing paratroopers, and how towing gliders and entire `poezdov` glider, and as an air sweeper, and getting to the front line of subversive groups, and to supply the guerrilla units in the rear of the enemy.
An inexpensive, unpretentious and reliable (no wonder it was called `eternal Duglas`), Li-2 was virtually omnipresent - these aircraft at low level breaking through in blockaded Leningrad and besieged Sevastopol, bombed Konigsberg, Helsinki and Budapest, paratroopers landed at Port Arthur, and Harbin Mukden (where the last emperor Pu Yi was captured ), participated in the Korean and Vietnam wars, in the suppression of the Hungarian revolt and in early nuclear explosion tests (samples were taken not only from the radioactive cloud, but even from the legs and skirt of nuclear explosion ) ...
A new book by a leading historian of aviation consists of complete information about the famous plane - its purchase, development, production, modernization, long service and combat use.
