On the night of July 21-22, 1941, an air attack on the capital began with a raid of 220 fascist bombers. The pilots of the 11th fighter aviation regiment of the Cuban airfield were the first to meet the enemy armada. Air battles took place at dusk and at night in the light of searchlights. The regiment repelled the raid of the Luftwaffe aces on the Solnechnogorsk – Golitsyno line. After the battle, in each of the downed aircraft, our pilots discovered detailed plans of Moscow with marks of objects intended for destruction in the first place: the Kremlin, transport infrastructure facilities, government buildings and airfields.
