 I decide to write about such aviators as Gromov Mikhail Michaulovich, Danilin Sergey Alekseevich and also Grizodybova Valentina Stepanovna.

 Mikhail Mikhailovich was the participant of Great Domestic war: since December 1941 – the commander of 31-st mixed aviation division (Kalininsky front); since February 1942 – the commander of Air Forces of Kalininskiu Front. In May 1942 – May 1943 – the commander of 3-rd air army created on the basis of the Air Forces of Kalininskiu Front.

  1. Okay, are these some of the aviators you might consider researching for your final paper? Maybe you can ask your grandma what she remembers reading or hearing about these famous pilots. Remember that I do not want to have any URLS or websites used for your paper but find things from Ebscohost at the British Council. I will be there next Saturday, one more time to help you and others.
