    I think much earlier, note the Obr35 Gyms and use of captured Polish arms.. 1941 or 42.

    "Natalya Mykelin HOSU flying with the Night Witches ! "


    I'd spell the surname like Meklin or Mecklin. In Russian it's Меклин.

    Actually, here is the wiki info:

    Great thread. I have read about the night witches before but I was wondering if anyone knows of any films made on the subject matter. I'd love to see a flick based on these female pilots.

    There is the old Soviet film "В небе ночные ведьмы" (Night Witches in the sky) 1982. Try to find it anywhere.
    Here, for example: http://www.fast-torrent.ru/film/v-ne...-and-quot.html

    The film director is Evgenia Zhigulenko (Евгения Жигуленко). She was one of them. 968 combat flights before she turned 25. Pics are below.

    There are a lot of beautiful girls in Russia. There are no such Heros now.

    I wonder if anyone has a reliable data not corrupted by the post-war propaganda. I am interested in losses among Russian women soldiers. Of course I could google for it, but some of the informations is duplicated between pages, even from old sources and it is difficult to obtain reliable data.

    Here some pictures i got on my HDD (surce: various websites, don't remember exact URLs)
