Man,IL2's are such "wet-dream" planes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
It's robust,pretty agile(for a bomber) and it packs a serius punch http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Only a shame that that one isn't maintained that well. and why the hell did they paint over the canopy? the numbnutts http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

They tend to paint over the canopy for a number of reasons.
1. to prevent sun damage on the glass and plexiglass. these things are photo sensitive and yellow and crack if exposed to direct daylite.

2. to prevent heat damage to the interior of the cockpit. just go to a junkyard and look in a old car plastics and rubber starts to melt. and leather will rot.

these 2 are for protection
the next one I have witnessed first hand and I consider it a SIN!

3. to not show that the plane has been completly gutted with the cockpit and supports being sold and used for scrap!! and the interior is being used for sorage.
Its sad but it happens all the time.
Those photos are beautifull and it is too bad they arnt being restored. If iI had millions of dollars I know what Id do with it. Thanks for the pics!!

What happened to all the Sturmoviks ?

Considering it had one of the largest production runs of all time, you'd expect more of them to be around or maybe not http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Reminds me of a scene out of "the best days of our lives", row after row of thrown away airplanes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Makes a pretty strong case for putting them in the private hands of guys who would restore and keep them in flyable condition. Museums have a lousy track record with preserving aircraft.

Great photos and considering they are out in the open they look like they have been very well maintained .
Apart from a little rust by the radiater theres not much wrong with them ,hell I'v seen 1yr old cars in worse condition .

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

Note that one of them appears to be an Il 10 hint, hint.

Thats quite sad, but there is worse. Haqs anyone seen images of historic/one-of-a-kind Russian aircraft just rotting in aviation boneyards?

Very nice website pics Infol. It's rare to find good close-up shots like that.
You don't have to apologize for your english. It is quite good and understandable.

Jenikovtaw, my source, IL-2 Sturmovik in Action, says the IL-10 entered combat February 2, 1945 near Sprottau on the Niesse River. "Most IL-10s were allocated to Assault Aviation Regiments of the 2nd and 16th Air Army which were engaged in the capture of Berlin and the liberation of Czechoslovakia. When the GPW ended on 9 May 1945...only about one hundred of them had entered service."
It did see much more action against the Japanese than it did against the Germans.

Bristolboy it looks that you are correct.

***
80% of all German casualties in WW2 were on the Eastern Front.
I need to make my pic smaller before i can post it.

I've always thought museums are kind of sad places. All that great hardware doomed never to run again.
Hopefully these great Russian warbirds will continue to gain in popularity so more among the ranks of the obscenely rich will choose to restore them. It can be next to impossible to aquire and make flyable a museum peice, can it not?



Infol, if you do go to see the plane, could you look (without getting into trouble!) to see if the cockpit is intact, and if this plane still has its engine? I think many here would like to know.

Is there ever a chance seeing the IL-10 in FB?
4X 23mm cannons would sure tear a target a new arsehole !

The cockpit of these particular planes (Il-2 and Il-10 in Warsaw) cannot be seen since the glass in the windows has been replaced by some plastic sheets.
