The BRAVO 369 Flight Foundation announced today the formal release of its promotional film preview "Warplanes to Siberia" outlining the story of the top secret Northern and Alaska-Siberia Air Routes and the incredible effort that delivered nearly 8,000 military aircraft from the United States to the former Soviet Union during World War II.
Jeff Geer, President and Chairman of the BRAVO 369 Flight Foundation said, We will be flying vintage World War II era North American T-6 Texan aircraft retracing the 6,000-mile air route from Great Falls, Montana to Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Created as part of the Lend-Lease Act of 1941, the route was the catalyst for the Alcan Highway to support the ferrying effort. Very few people have ever heard of this secret route and the transfer of warplanes to the Soviets who were waiting in Fairbanks to fly them on to Siberia.
Aeroclassic Productions, under the direction of the BRAVO 369 Flight Foundation, in association with Family History Videos and Pedal Power Productions, will be producing a fact-based, multi-part feature documentary that will be marketed for distribution to domestic and international television and cable networks. According to Geer, We will be interviewing surviving veterans who participated in the ALSIB program, visiting museums and local newspaper archives, and flying the actual route to accurately tell this fascinating story to keep the history alive.
