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!!

 With his personal emblem of black and white fuselage band adorning his Fokker E.V, 153/18, Richard Wenzl briefly commanded Jasta 6, based at Bernes in August 1918, and claimed a modest 6 victories during his career with JG 1. The Fokker E.V was both fast and manoeuvrable, but a series of engine and structural failures meant that these exciting new machines saw only brief service before being re-worked to emerge as the D.VIII, sadly too late to make any impression on the war. Wenzl is shown here in combat with Sopwith Camels of 203 Sqn, assisted by Fokker D.VIIs, which served alongside the E.Vs of Jasta 6. The D.VII shown is that of Ltn d R Erich Just of Jasta 11, also based at Bernes.

 Flight Lieutenant Ian <i>Widge</i> Gleed is depicted in his personal Hurricane 1 P2798 (LK-A) of 87 Sqn shooting down a Messerschmitt Bf.110 on 15th August 1940.  Just visible beneath the cockpit of the Hurricane is his mascot, Figaro, shown kicking a swastika.  His aircraft was also easily identifiable by the red flash on its nose, a feature that was retained even when P2798 was painted all black for its night fighter role. Gleed scored many victories before being shot down and killed whilst flying a Spitfire Vc in the Western Desert in April 1943.
