    Default Hurricane wreck with pilot recovery. Northern Russia

    The fate of the pilot Lazarev
    February, 21st, 1943 from the Soviet military air base in Chupa two fighters P-40 and five Hurricanes flight to the operation one of the Hurricanes was piloted by the pilot of 760-th IAP sergeant Lazarev

    In the same time German pilot Oberfeldwebel Rudolf Muller from 6/JG5 ' Expertenstaffel with his squad of the four of fighters Bf109G has been escorted five bombers Ju87D, and entered to the fight on his Bf109G-2 with the Soviet fighters of 760-th IAP. In action, near the area of railway station Polyarnyi Krug, he shot down his last plane in his life, before he got the same fate- he was knock out on April, 19th 1943. Muller's plane has been hit in 8 km to the east of lake Maljarvi, then catch by soviets and sent in POW camp where was killed on October, 21st 1943 when attempting to escape. The military historian Jury Rybin, has found out the information confirming the fact in archive, that in that day Muller has hit down two Soviet planes, one of which was piloted by sergeant Boris Aleksandrovich Lazarev.


    Most likely after the Hurricane was hit, Lasarev having unfastened belts on his hands, tried to leave the machine falling down, but has loose time. Probably, the low height has not allowed it to make it. ' Hurricane ' has fallen in a bog. The pilot was died from the strongest kick to a control panel of the plane. When he died he was only 22 y.o

    Boris Aleksandrovich Lazarev burried in the cemetry of Chupa, Karelian Republic

    Hi Dimas....

    Its not possible to say "Wow" to these pictures.
    I hope that the pilot is burried in a cemetary now...
    But anyway: The body is well preserved...
    Was the pilot under water ???

    Thanks again for these pictures showing a side
    of the history that we collectors often forgets....
    There is allways a sad history connected to the things
    that we collect....

    The human being is a strange animal

    Of course, the remains of pilots burried in the cemetry, as all papers is in perfect condition and can be identificated immediately. The bog preserved all in excellent condition

    Also here is the picture of Rudolf Muller and his Bf 109 G2, on the ice

    Hello,

    a newbie here.
    Always interested about war relics but unfortunately no additional data about sgt. Lazarev. Instead Fw. Rudolph Muller seems to be well known around. A couple of pics:

    Painting of 50th air victory to his F-4 Yellow Three.


    His G2/R6 Yellow Three in Petsamo 10Apr1943. According to Dimas, not many days left.

    That is absolutely incredible. I still can't believe how well preserved the body is! Fascinating. It just makes the war so much more "real"!

    Thank you for posting this .... I think it is really interesting stuff, even if it is somewhat gruesome.

    Cheers!
