In this video I want to show you the excavation of the Soviet MiG-3 fighter Sergeant Alexander Melnikov. He died in April 1942 in Parfino district, near the lake Ilmen. Was reported missing. The work was carried out by searchers from several teams of the Novgorod region. It wasn't easy, but it was very interesting. Relatives of the deceased pilot were found. Among Alexander's personal belongings was found a photo card with the text on the back: "Keep me as I keep you. A keepsake for Sasha from Zina" dated 41. He was not married.
