Okay, here you go. I'll give you a series of 3 clues and a photograph, you tell me the squadron the pilot flew under, the plane type flown in that squadron during the pilot's service, and the name of the pilot:

Clues:

1. She joined the VVS in 1942 at the age of 19.
2. Flew 840 combat missions in 3 years.
3. Was distinguished for her bravery many times. Won the HSU award, Order of Lenin, etc...

the White Rose of Stalingrad? Didn't she flew Yaks?

In May 1942, Nazi submarines sank two Mexican tankers, and Mexico declared war against the Axis powers. Thus forming the 201st Mexican Fighter Squadron equipped with the P-47D and sent to fight in the Pacific

Nope, it is not Lidiya (Lilya) Vladimirovna Litvyak. Keep guessing! Remember I want the squadron and plane type as well!

Natalya Myeklin of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment flying Po-2's.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Correctamundo! It is indeed Natalya Myeklin!

Lilya wasn't the only female pilot who accomplished unachievable odds. There are hundreds of them, and I've got plenty of cool photos. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
