Next to Svetlana in the photo Nikolai Anisimov. He's Maestro. His song "I'm a Pilot" I used in my video.

Tom cat here,

just making a couple posts until I can pm Manny to get my  login info. My phone died, and having a  bugger of  a time  retrieving all my  info.

ISIS may have lost a large percentage of it's territory,  but Russia had a  big  role in making that happen.

If true, Russia had one of it's biggest losses since it arrived in Syria.

I'll probably never be so lucky, but that's the type of woman I'm after. Awards or not, I hold female aviators in high regard. Thanks again for sharing Annushka, now I'm going to further research Svetlana Kapanina.  :plane: tiphat :thumbsup:

The scale seems more realistic, more believable, for sure.

The Guardian was only giving the Guardinista’s what they wanted to hear.

There does seem to be some 'confusion' here. Pics have been shown that definitely did not come from the attack site. The Russians tend, these days, to be pretty open about such matters and they say that the Komersant story is exaggerated.

It does seem that the attack was not just a mortar attack though and that incoming rockets were successfully intercepted with a single incoming missile not downed but landing outside the base.

And, yes, it does suit the agenda of some media outlets to big up the story - any bad news about Russia being good news and all that.

As a final note: the Colonel Cassad site claims that there was some damage to some planes and that site is not known for being a nest of liars sharing unfounded reports.

No discussion on Russia bombing civilians, killing children and supporting Assad and his chemical attacks?
 Really not surprised, being that this us the new RUA.
