Flying Heritage Collection Adds a Shturmovik

The internet forums were all a buzz a couple weeks ago when the pictures and videos hit the world wide web.  An Ilyushin Il-2 "Shturmovik" was seen in the videos to be flying over Russia!  Where did it come from and who's was it!  The Flying Heritage Collection posted a news release that answered those questions.  The Il-2 is on a ship and headed for Everett, Washington to join Paul Allen's growing collection of historic aircraft.  Hats off to Mr. Allen for restoring such a rare ship.
