IL-2 Shturmovik First Flight in the US

The Flying Heritage Collection has made the first flight of their IL-2 Shturmovik at its home in Everett, Washington.  The IL-2 was first flown after its restoration in Russia and the flight made last week was its first U.S. based flight.  Steve Hinton piloted the IL-2.



Thanks to Al Sauer for the photo and congratulations to FHC for another rare type restored to flying for all to see!
