Excellent find... in the third one down. It looks like the guy on the left is checking out a camera. Photo aircraft maybe?

I think it's an ammo check as those lil' doors are right below the gun...

They were kinda sexy and feminumnumnum (not the unshaven brutes flying in Korea though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif ). I always thought the "russian tanker" helmet made Russian tankers look rather pretty. The language is among the most beautiful spoken languages, and the politics among the most violent and deadly.

The top scoring French WW1 ace was a skinny sickly "little girl" until he vanished without trace. The top scoring Ussian WW2 ace "couldn't punch his way out of a paper bag" until Christmas 1944 when AA 0.50's shot him dead in his cockpit Richthofen-style (what else could possibly take out the top Ussian Ace?)

This definately woke me up! Now I've got to clean up the coffee I just spilled on the table when I read your post.

No, I'm not gay. I was referring to that chick (it is chick, right) that fiddled with the Il-2 ammo. I've also seen some other Russian aviatrixes and they were almost all strikingly pretty. Perhaps I should have been more elaborate in my first post.

There you have it.

Jeez Jasko, I thought you must have been the guy in the back, glad you cleared that up.
I thought he was giving you the old NRNRH routine.

Well, she is not strictly speaking a pilot, maybe that's where the confusion came from.

But yes, this forum if full of ppl with a bit too much free time on their hands, it seems. Beware!
