Default Re: Krasin Icebreaker 1930s

As I vaguely recall there was a movie made of the "incident" with the crash of the airship and the ultimate rescue of survivors. The icebreaker "played" herself in this movie.

I saw it on tv long ago; does anyone remember this movie and its name and cast? DFO

To answer my own questions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Tent_(film)

I totally forgot that James Bond, err...Sean Connery was in the film, but dimly remembered Peter Finch and of course Claudia....she stood out more than the KRASIN. Of course the history of that ship is really quite amazing! If one was in the area, a visit to her would certainly be worthwhile!!

 Landing and taking off from the hillsides, rather than established airfields, this was extremely dangerous work which involved the pilot following the terrain and contours of the land that was being dressed in order to ensure an even distribution of the chemical.  Australian-born Jim McMahon, served during World War II on B.25 Mitchell bombers before pioneering crop dusting and topdressing in New Zealand with ex-military De Havilland Tiger Moths which he converted himself for the purpose.  He went on to form a company called Crop Culture, which specialised in aerial spraying equipment, both in New Zealand and in the UK, before becoming a partner in the newly-formed Britten-Norman aircraft company which produced the Islander and Trislander utility transport aircraft in England.

 On the night of 12th/13th November 1940, Whitley V P5005 found itself slightly off course above the primary target due to problems with the intercom. Changing instead to a secondary target, some railway marshalling yards near Cologne, Pilot Officer Leonard Cheshire suddenly felt his aircraft rocked by a series of violent explosions that caused a severe fire to break out in the fuselage, filling the cockpit with acrid black smoke. As DY-N plunged some 2,000 feet, Cheshire managed to regain control and the fire was eventually extinguished. For bringing his aircraft safely home to 102 Squadron's base after being airborne for eight and half hours, Cheshire was awarded a DSO.
