The Flying Heritage Collection’s Soviet T-34 smokes up the track during Flying Tanks Day on Sept. 17.

This year’s event held at Paine Field featured the collection's "heavyweights": the Ilyushin IL-2M3 Shturmovik, B-25 Mitchell, P-51 Mustang and the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt in the air, and the Soviet T-34 and the Scud SS-1A on the ground.

Thanks for running my photo!  I am happy to share my Flying Heritage Collection photos with you!


BTW, it wasn't a Scunner but a R-11M WITH 8U218 TEL (SS-1B SCUD-A) BALLISTIC MISSILE SYSTEM.
