When you wonder across Russian swamps you can easily find crash sites of WW2 planes.

Russia and plane crash is synonymous with such bad quality planes and substandard maintenance.
“always been more spartan”
there you go, all you Yanks bring Iran into it somewhere
6 cylinders?… Maybe more?.. Very nice!
they should be 16: two different layers with 8 cylinders each
In back ground,acid rain forest?????i think this shot downed plane carries some chemical weapon! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Swamps look like that… ehh
Wander, not Wonder. Fifth!
WOW nice Radial engine!
I think is not old plain but modern one.look at qualiti of engine only can be RUSSIAN! ! ! ! ! ! ! !these are the plaines that bommed shakeaswilli and will bomp U ASS! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
It doesn’t look that old. I think if the plane really had crushed during WW2 not much would have remained of it to this day.
Very interesting. Does anyone know the location and type of aircraft?
Cynical, I would go with a DB-3/Il-4. Twin oleo main landing gear struts. The Tu-2 had single strut mains.
There is no crash site. There is only swamp gas.
Is it smart to walk where a WWII plane wreck is smeared all over the ground? You would hope it was unarmed when it crashed…
Looks like the plane has burned pretty severely upon crash – just look at deformation on engine cylinders. That fire has most likely taken all ammo out already.
It doesn’t look like WW2 plane.
If it were that old the parts would’t be in such a good state.
Russian new funny sport, car jumping:
This was on English Russia less than a week ago. Try to keep up.
Gieroy, Thanks for the very funny video. I needed a good laugh today after dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Ike here in Houston.
Cynical, I would go along with a DB-3/Il-4 since there are twin oleo struts. Tu-2s had single strut.
It does not look like a WW2 crash. Steel in a swamp for almost 70 years would be a little more rusted. It’s also a little odd that some of the parts are leaning against young sapplings that are bent over like the wreckage appeared after the trees had started to grow. It looks more like a single engine modern plan to me.
Also, I don’t think aluminum piston heads were very common on WW2 Russian radial engines, but I could be wrong.
I stand corrected, it looks more like a modern 2 engine plane wreck.
A few Li-2s had M-88s.
Yes, the Li-2s had twin oleo landing gear, but the fork shaped trailing strut was attached at the axle in their case. Other than the DB-2/Il-4, the only other similar main gear that I can find is the Petlyakov Pe-2. A few were built with Shvetsov engines.

i agree with you john,definately not a tu-2.dont know about the other one u mentioned-maybe i not familiar with the model although im pretty sure its russian ’cause if you look at that radial,the gear and cylinder design is from ither ilyushin or yakovlev(not sure bout the model though)
A few were. the Yakovlev OKB tried the M-82 in a Yak-7, but without success. Otherwise Yakovlev built a number of trainers with radial engines, the UT-2 and Yak-11. The Yak-6 light transport/bomber was powered by two M-11s
you can trust russian trainer aircraft to crash!besides,you can tell that(the chassis structure)is definitely longer than that of a single seater
The rivit patterns on that long piece suggest a fuel tank.
Actually that is not accurate.
The Lisunov PS-84 was flying passengers before the war as a civilian plane. When the war broke out they were taken over by the military and renamed the Li-2
The Ilyushin Il-12 was as a passenger plane with Areoflot and was powered by 2 ASh-82 radial piston engines
The Ilyushin Il-14 was also flown as a passenger plane with Areoflot and was powered bt 2 ASh-82T-7 radial piston engines and they stopped flying in 2005.
The Antonov An-2 was produced for 45 years until the 90′s(also the largest single engine bi-plane) is powered by an Ash-62 and is used as a crop duster as well as a passenger plane.
The Antonov An-14 was also flown for Areoflot and was powered by 2 Ivchenko AI-14RF radial engines.
There is probably about 10 more.
Lol @ whoever said the wreck was in a good state. It looks like any other water-bogged ww2 wreck. There are even similar ww2 era wrecks in Alaska only in a better shape.
This is famous UFO crash site of Roswellski
being a restore of WW2 aircraft I find these photo’s authentic.My ompany has recieved several wrecks from russia and these aircrat are now flying in aishows.Ithink many of the bloggers above need to do a great deal of reading asyour knowledge of Russian aviation is very out of dae and limited.The Rusian aircraft of today and the past are just as good, if not better that anything in the world at there time of manufacture.Biggest problem with westernworld, is there limited ability to regognise that other conties cn make things just as good as them, if not better.By the way I not Russian or American, but do know about avaition.Anyone from Russia know of any wreck sites for Shturmovik il2-3m in Russia,Ukraine,Moldova? please let me know
+1. WWII aircraft wrecks all over the world show similar deterioration. In many cases, even less.

Where is that
Landing gear bracing and bracketry matches DB-3/IL-4. Tumansky M-87 or 88 engines (not M-85s, slightly different cylinders), welded steel beam reinforced construction. It’s halfway around the world to me but a challenge to try an ID. I’s say pretty confidently that it’s a DB-3/IL-4.
