Russian PS-84 shot down 6 August 1941

Hi guys

On 6 August 1941, a PS-84 (licence-built DC-3) on a mercy evacuation flight from Murmansk, was shot down by a Bf109 from 14./JG77.

The pilot was Comrade Muromets and the aircraft was carrying 16 wounded soldiers. In the crash two were killed and two wounded.

Can anyone please elaborate? May have been CCCP-L3411

Cheers
Brian

According to Lennart Andersson that aircraft was canx from the Soviet register 8 Aug 1941, so not impossible

The pilot's first name cannot be Comrade, that's a Soviet (Communist) appelative.

Hi Brian,

L3486 was listed as lost that date to enemy action, making it a good candidate for the one you might be looking for

Hope that provides a good lead for you to follow.

Continued best wishes for your book project

Nick

Hi Nick - good to hear from you

Thanks for that. Any idea of the identity of the PS-84 shot down by friendly fire on 29 June 1941? Apparently no crew casualties.

Cheers
Brian

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
