Re: Soviet Boston lost over Strait of Kerch on 29.12.43?

Hello, Juha!

29.12.43 not a Boston but Li-2 of 1.esc. of 9.AP GVF (transport regiment of Civil Air Fleet) was attacked by 2 Me-109 during his flight from Ahtanizovskaya to Zhukovka (Kerch bridgehead). This plane had crew of 5 airman, pilot - Kpt.Kurepin. The plane began to burn in the air but made a successful landing on the border of Zhukovka landing ground. 1 man was killed, two - badly wounded. No info about cargo or passengers. In all that day 9.AP transferred in 25 flights to bridgehead 2425 kg of food, 1320 kg of medical cargo, 5 kg of post and 15 officers, evac.from bridgehead 27 badly wounded men.
What a subject of your research?
