Mengangkat Puing Mesin Pesawat Il-2 di Sungai Neva

A floating crane lifts from the Neva river the engine of an Ilyushin Il-2, a ground-attack aircraft which was found underwater near Kirovsk, 50 kilometers (31 miles) east of St.Petersburg, Russia, Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015. This aircraft apparently was shot and fell into the river in October 1941 when the Red Army fought there against Nazi Germany's troops besieging Leningrad. The city's name was changed back from Leningrad to St. Petersburg after the 1991 Soviet collapse.

Sebuah derek apung mengangkat mesin Ilyushin Il-2 dari sungai Neva. Sebuah pesawat penyerang daratan ditemukan di bawah air di dekat Kirovsk, 50 kilometer di timur kota Sankt Petersburg, Rusia, pada Rabu (19/8). Pesawat ini tampaknya ditembak dan jatuh ke sungai pada bulan Oktober 1941 ketika Tentara Merah berperang melawan pasukan Nazi Jerman saat pengepungan Leningrad. Nama kota ini kemudian diubah kembali dari Leningrad ke Sankt Petersburg setelah keruntuhan Soviet pada tahun 1991.
