    Great shots. Definitely a family treasure.

    Did your father fly A20s or Pe2s? Looks a little like both.

    Those are some great pictures!

    Thanks for sharing!

    We would like to hear some stories from him about his flying the airplanes.

    The air war between the axis and Russians is still little known.
