Re: Russian PS-84 shot down 6 August 1941

Hi Brian, serial number is not listed but the entry is this:

with Wright engine cowlings; opb NII VVS at Chkalovski; in two-tone camo c/s with natural metal
undersides; damaged 29jun41 on a flight from Chkalovski to Pskov-Kresty with technical personnel of 402
iap on board when the landing gear did not lower, as the aircraft was shot at by Soviet fighters from the 8
sad and by Soviet anti-aircraft artillery by mistake, the crew opted for an immediate belly-landing; the
damaged aircraft was still present 03jul41 but as it could not be recovered in time it was burnt before
26jul41 to prevent it falling into German hands
