    I actually meant no he isnt Russian. He's part of a Russian re-enactment group and I think he's actually from Bristol in the UK.

    Nyet, nyet! Ya ne Rooski, ya Anglichanyen f'Bristolye!

    Hawker Hurricanes? Well, as far as I know they dragged one out of a lake on the Kola Peninsular in amazing condition. I understand they're going to restore it to flying status, and I imagine it will appear at airshows over there.

    There is also the Russian Federation Air Force Museum in Monino which is outside Moscow, which apparantly has two Lend-Lease Hurricanes exibited there.

    I have those 2 on my list, i also have several others now.

    I was hoping i could get in contact with someone out there that could confirm their condition and possibly provide photos. No, i am not doing a survivors list, i am doing something different. Just as part of it i am trying to locate as many survivors as i can.
    At the moment i am only looking at ones that fly or are under restoration to fly but i will soon be moving into the museam examples.

    there're memoiries of a russian navy hurricane pilot, it's all in cyrillic but there're also some photos the hurricane II with soviet markings.
    I had also somewhere a list of soviet air squadrons equipped with the hurricanes and tomahawks, mainly in the baltic, Murmansk and Leningrad area, but can't find it right now :(
    Hopefully my English is still readable, haven't wrote since centuries

    I think there is a russian translation to english somewhere on the web. Not having the fogiest notion of cyrillic, I don't know what that said. But the pics look familiar.

    Your english is good enough to read. Decent to good.
