9 December 1943 - YAK 1 loss (Lipfert's 74th victory)

Dear all,

I am re-reading the classic war diary written by Lipfert and Girbig and remembered his difficult dogfight with this Russian pilot that he describes as "the Ivan certainl must be an expert".

Lipfert finally managed to force this YAK-1 to crash (belly) land on a small island in the Strait of Kerch. I do not know if this is Kossa Tusla or as he recorded, Taman. The time was 11:15hs.

Is there ANY positive identification of this loss onto (now open to Russians) Russian Archives? The pilot apparently run off and the YAK-1 was only finished by Lipfert next morning....as he straffed it.

I do thank you (specially Russian experts) onto any help identifying this Russian pilot that he humbly honored as a fantastic flyer.

Adriano B.
