“I was hoping that my husband was on the other side, which was turned around,” Olga said. “But I understood that it was he who crashed.” Before departure, he always reported that he was flying out and that he had arrived, but this time there were no messages for a long time.”
“My husband has many awards... He really loved flying and his planes,” said the wife.
