I can not wrap my head around the ability of any WW1 pilot to fly those early planes in the winter, let alone a Russian winter. But I do love those helmets! great pics, Elephant

Those are all great pics. I like the ones that show men in the workshops.

elephant, that is a nice group of photos you've found there. I believe some of them are in Alan Durkota's massive work, "The Imperial Russian Air Service, Famous Pilots and Aircraft of World War One".

Thanks for sharing.
