Certainly has fate on his side! (I wonder if he would have fared so well, had he been wearing a seatbelt?)...guess we'll never know

In Soviet Russia...


Recall, Oleg Maddox survived two Moscow car accidents within a few months, and kept on on coding (he did get hurt some though).




A third prototype, known as IL-3, was built and flown in early 1926. It went to state trials on March and was flown by A.I. Sharapov, but it was destroyed because of an unrecovered spin. Sharapov couldn't bail out, but survived the crash.

That, by the way, is why I call the BoB sim IL-3.
