Biplane fighter aces

Soviet Union

Kapitan Aleksandr Fedorovich Avdeyev HSU

1917 - 12 August 1942

Aleksandr Fedorovich Avdeyev was born 1917 in the village Velka Talinka. He lived in Lyubina near Moscow and worked in a factory. He learned to fly in a civilian aeroclub were he received his license in 1937. In 1938 he joined the army and attended the Borisoglebsk Military Air College.

During the Winter War, Avdeyev served in the Leningrad area in the 153 IAP as a Leytenant and was later promoted to Starshiy Leytenant and Flight commander.

After the German attack on the Soviet Union, the 153 IAP defended Leningrad City using I-153 Tchaika biplanes.

On 19 July 1941, Avdeyev claimed two Bf109s.

One day his flight attacked a formation of Ju88s protected by Bf109s (approx. 20 aircraft altogether) over the Leningrad area. He shot down one of the bombers in flames but his aircraft was damaged by return fire and caught fire. He continued however to attack and shot down another bomber before he bailed out and parachuted to safety.
He was wounded during this combat and hospitalised. When he returned from hospital he was promoted to Kapitan.

On 23 September 1941 he attacked AA guns position near Pushkino together with others and destroyed them.

The next day he led a formation of fighter-bombers from 153 IAP in an attack on an enemy motorised column on the eastern outskirts of Leningrad and they shot up more than ten vehicles.

In the beginning of October 1941, during a reconnaissance flight he and Nikolay Lebedev found five He111s. Avdeyev shot down the formation leader but Lebedev's guns jammed and defending fire damaged his aircraft. Avdeyev saved his friend by hazardous manoeuvres so that the Heinkels had to return without success.

On 5 October, he shot down a Bf109.

In 1941 he was awarded with the Order of the Red Banner for 189 flights and 11 aerial victories.

Avdeyev was also decorated with the Order of the Red Star in December 1941 after having discovered a disguised German long-range artillery battery during a reconnaissance mission..

On 1 January 1942, he added another victory.


153 IAP was the first regiment to be re-equipped with the Bell Airacobra (Mk.Is produced for the RAF but shipped to the USSR instead). The first sorties with the new fighters were flown on 30 June 1942 and the unit was also later re-based to Lipetsk Airbase.

In August 1942 his unit fought over the Voronezh area.

On 12 August 1942, the unit attacked enemies in the Novaya Usman area. During this combat he was killed when ramming a Bf109.
It seems that most probably this combat was against Bf109s from II/JG 77, which was the only Luftwaffe fighter unit based in the Voronezh area in August 1942, but this has not been possible to verify. Hungarian Re.2000 fighters were stationed south of Voronezh, but they didn’t suffer any losses on this date.
According to Russian sources his victim was 46-victory ace Feldwebel Franz Schulte of 6./JG 77, who went missing during the day.

On 10 February 1943 he was posthumously awarded the Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union and the Order of Lenin.

At the time of his death, Avdeyev was credited with 12 biplane victories and a total of 13.


Biplane victories: 12 destroyed.
TOTAL: 13 destroyed.

Hello Monsieur Olife,

Thank you for starting this new series, a fantastic add on to our Club thread. Reading through these short biographies makes us more aware of what it really meant to go to war in airplanes, and how easy and inconsequential (except for having fun and making lots of friends) it is for us.

Another of your wonderful contributions. Merci!

MAC

gunten tag teacher!

millions thanks for compliments!really very kind from u!!
and yes i'm agree with u,we play a video game,for fun and share our planes passion with friends,...but for these real ww2 pilots ,it was not a game for sure,i think ,they even didn't think 1 second to be an ace but just try to defend their country in same time stay alive as long as possible and sometimes their love for their country was strongest and important than their own life...they were and are the real heroes...i'm not sure that in our modern materialistic world ,we should be able to do the same...they fought for their life ,they fought for their country,they fought for the honor of their flag!....

even if i called this rubric"ace of war",i will add some pilots who had only 1 or 2 or even 0 victories because even if they are not an official aces ,i think to fly in ww2 planes ,fight and survive ,these guys are all the aces!!

i just want to honored them with these humble rubric .


danke teacher!

ace of war part 2

[IMG][/IMG]

(black crosses=victories sure - grey crosses=victories share with an other pilot)


Marcel Albert


What an extraordinary journey for this Parisian " wisecracking " kid, successively, a lathe operator for the Renault factory, hero of the Soviet Union, and consortium executive in the USA…

Born in Paris on the 25th of November 1917, Marcel Albert started his working life as a lowly apprentice for the Renault Company in Billancourt outside of Paris. Fascinated with aviation, he passed both basic pilot licenses thanks to a Government grant. In 1938, he entered the Istres flight school and obtained his military pilot license in July of that year. Promoted to Corporal, he was assigned a year later to the first fighter wing.

When World War Two began, he was transferred to the CIC (fighter pilot school center) in Chartres as an Instructor. Insisting on being sent to the front, he finally got his wish in February of 1940, and he was assigned to the 2nd escadrille of fighter group I/3 based in Cannes, as the transition to Dewoitine D-520 was in progress.

It was with GC I/3 that Marcel Albert obtained his first two victories; one confirmed on Mai 14th, and one probable on the 20th. After a long period of inactivity due to the armistice, Albert planned on " deserting " the Air Force of the Armistice with two other comrades; Sergeants Durand and Lefèvre. On the 14th of October 1941, taking off from Oran Algeria for a routine patrol, the three pilots headed for Gibraltar, where from there, they would rally the free French in England. At the end of the RAF's mandatory transition in a training unit, Albert was assigned to the Group " Ile de France " in May of 1942 where he would fly 48 war missions.

Volunteering for the Russian front, he arrived to the group " Normandie " on the 7th of October 1942. On the 16th of June 1943 he achieved his first success in Russia:
" With Préziosi, we had taken off to protect the small train station of Soukinovichi located near the front. All of a sudden, an interpreter came on the radio, announcing that an enemy reconnaissance airplane was taking photos of the train station. Looking in the direction of the station, I spotted a twin boom airplane, probably a Focke-Wulf 189. I rocked my wings to alert Préziosi, we had radio, but we seldom used it. The " Fritz " never saw us coming, and after we shot at him, he performed a reversed turn, coming very close to us. The airplane had lost the cone of its center cockpit; one of its engines was stopped and full of holes.
We followed him for a while and I could smell the odor of burnt varnish as we flew behind him. We abandoned him at an altitude of about 50 meters and Préziosi and I flew on home. Photos taken of the FW-189's airdrome by the Russians that very morning showed 12 airplanes on the field. In the evening, as they again took photos, there was one airplane less, and that fact confirmed our victory.

During the Orel battle, Albert would add five more victories to his core. Following the lost of Lieutenant Léon, he took command of the 1st escadrille on the 4th of September 1943. When the "Normandie" moved to its winter quarters in Toula on the 6th of November 1943, Albert learned of his promotion to the rank of lieutenant.
During the offensive against Eastern Prussia in October of 1944, he scored 7 new victories; Stalin honored Albert by naming him " Hero of the Soviet Union " on November 28 1944.

Promoted to Captain, Marcel Albert left the regiment on the 12th of December 1944. He was one of the rare survivors of the first contingent, and one of only three pilots of the " Normandie Niemen " who became a " Commandeur de la Légion d'Honneur ".
He would again join his regiment for their triumphant return at Le Bourget airport in June of 1945. Named Inspector of the Fighter Arm in October of 1945, he became the Air attaché in Prague, then left the Air Force, immigrated to the United States where he got married and became President of a large consortium of companies.
