Wow! I share with you this fantastic and extensive report bringing a super collection of incredible, stunning and rare photos showing various types of American and British fighters in service with the Soviet Air Force during World War II. Many of the images and planes shown in the article were unknown to me and did not even know they had flown with the legendary Red Star. Be sure to visit the link below, you will also be amazed by the images:


Best Regards!

I knew about the Spitfire and Hurricane being used but did not know of the American Airacobra and Thunderbolt aircraft. Thanks for a great set of nostalgic pictures.
