Russian Fighter Pilots Honor Lydia Litvyak-steam_api.dll

E-Books There were many Russian fighter pilots who earned the designation of ace during World War II, but only two women to do so. One of those women was Lilia Litviak, also known as Lydia Litvyak. Whether you’ve read a Lydia Litvyak book or seen articles on her history, those who have learned a little about her usually want to know more. On the one hand this could be because she’s a fascinating character and was clearly an impressive woman, and on the other hand it could be because her story tends to end in mystery. While there are several theories about the end of Litvyak’s life, no one knows for sure what truly happened. Some believe she died when her plane went down under fire from German Bombers while others believe she survived the attack and was taken by German soldiers on the ground. There were even rumors that she survived and was still alive even though most believed her to be dead soon after she failed to report back from her mission. While her death is certainly a point of interest, there is far more to focus on in her life. Litvyak’s interest in aviation began young, as it would have to given that she died at the age of 21. She joined a flying club at the age of 14 and at the age of 15 she took her first solo flight. Later she went to Kherson military flying school. After she finished her schooling, Litvyak went on to be.e a flight instructor. She trained many pilots and by the time the German-Russian war broke out she was ready to go. After being turned down for lack of hours, Litvyak exaggerating her experience in order to join the 586th Fighter Regiment of the Air Defense Force which was an all-female unit. Later she flew with what had previously been all-male units as well. One of the things that most draws people in to her story is the bright spirit that she appeared to be. She was rebellious in nature, with stories being told of her victory laps that buzzed the aerodrome and included aerial acrobatics which her .manding officer greatly disapproved of. She was engaged as well (her fiance died during the war), and always kept her femininity even in very masculine settings. Not only did she profess a great love of flowers, even keeping them in the cockpit with her, but she also tended to dye her hair and make scarves out of parachute fabric – not exactly regulation fashion!
