“No plane is the same”

Lazarenko’s record 300th combat flight took place a few days ago – on May 13, the pilot’s wife said.

“Morning. I came back from a combat mission 40 minutes ago… This is my 300th combat flight. If anyone thinks that’s something to be proud of, they’re wrong. The emotions are completely different… Every time you feel fear, every time you take off, you think, will you return this time or will this be the last flight?

– said the pilot during a conversation with Army Inform.

Soldier noted No plane is the same. He directly stated that he did not want to remember some of them, and often saw fallen colleagues in his dreams. His account shows that even a damaged plane will not set him back because soldiers are trusted by their families, friends and above all the people of the country.
