At this place we found out that our radiator was leaking, the coolingliquid was pooring out. While filling it from time to time we drove on to Ryvne when we found out first MiG on a stick in Dubno.

At Zhitomir we were guided by the Pilot of the week, when we found out that even a Pilot of the week has a boss. The boss didn’t think it was such a good idea having all these people checking out his airfield.

At the Antonov factory at Gostomel there was a Dmitri who didn’t mind guiding us around the airfield “without any problem……but it’s impossible” but we did need a letter from the chief-designer of Antonov. He even tried to reach the chief by phone, bur it didn’t work out.

After starting this day off by finishing Zhulyani we went to search for Sviatoshino where the other Antonov facility should be. We’ll probably never know. On the way to Bila Cherkva we found an An.2 on a grass-strip.

When we were almost finished spotting all the bombers in store here, a small fighter cam overshooting. We thought it’d be a MiG.29 from the nearby base of Vasilkov. When it turned around to land it turned out to be a Su.15. Quite a nice surprise I must say.
