Nicholas Radchenko. The irreplaceable assistant pilot.
This story happened to the pilot by the name of Nicholas Roerich Radchenko. During the war he flew on a single the Il-2.
Once Nicholas sheltered street dog. Every time the pilot was returning from the flight, dog owner waiting on the aircraft parking area. Once renovated attack aircraft, it was necessary to make circled around the airfield. Nicholas decided to take the dog with him to ride. He thought that all the same in the cabin space of the aircraft is greater than a fighter. And the "loop the loop" on it, too, do not accepted. Planted Nicholas muzzle the dog back, he rubbed paws for bronespinku and went in flight.
Once aviator going to go to land, when the dog suddenly so much angry that the hair stood up on end. And barking dog right hoarse. Radchenko looked around, but saw no one. But this is not surprising, because the "IL" aircraft visibility is very bad, especially if you look back and down.
Still, the pilot felt that the dog is angry without reason and immediately sent a plane down into the left slide. At the same moment by the right wing of a huge number of bullets flew, and flew several aircraft Bf-109 and Fw-190.
Since Nicholas flew alone with his dog, who always looked back and barked menacingly solely on the Bf-109 and Fw-190. In no enemy airplanes as he had not barked. The most important thing is that the dog reacted even on planes that do not fall into the field of view, and went below.
I wonder how a dog could distinguish the sound of enemy aircraft even over the noise of the engine?
