    That is pretty nice. I had no idea B-24's were sent over there.

    I was wondering that myself. Three ideas: Maybe that photo was taken in the U.S. during a ferry flight stop over, a bomber that was damaged and continued on the the Soviet Union, or one that was on some kind of long range mission where it landed in U.S.S.R. then returned to base after rearming and refueling?

    Another link from the same site. I've been digging around on it, and lots of really interesting stuff on it.

    German photos from over Russia


    English Russia WW2 Aerial Shots

    You're probably right. That is one of my favorite sites that I check daily and I completely managed to miss the last link you posted. NICE and thanks!
