Attack aircraft IL-2 was navodivshim fear of the enemy is a formidable weapon in the great patriotic war. In total there were manufactured more than 15 thousand of these aircraft.

  • IL-2 is a legendary fighter, he's really bothered in the great patriotic war and it is very good that it in 70 years, installed at the entrance to Samara. Sturmovik was created under the leadership of S.v. Ilyushin. In 1945, after the victory over Nazi Germany, the production of this aircraft has been terminated. And the remaining surviving veterans wanted to perpetuate this aircraft and the memory of him. Long searches of the aircraft gave results. Only in the Murmansk region discovered remains and transported to Kuibyshev. Began its recovery and almost legendary fighter was created anew, it was decided to put the monument on the plane one of the most prominent places of the city. This Stormtrooper is a symbol of the contribution of Kuibyshev workers in case of victory, many enterprises have participated in the construction of small but terrible IL -2. The monument has become a symbol, kuibyshev, and this is already a tradition to come to the monument during the holidays and family celebrations. Here I am, arriving in Samara from Togliatti, remember the courageous shooters and pilots who lives in a terrible war.
