27 March 2013. Вечная память! The 45th Anniversary of the Death of First Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in a Training Flight in 1968

00 Heroism NEVER Dies Out... Castro and Gagarin


Forty-five years ago, Yuri Gagarin, the first man to enter outer space, died in an accident during a routine training flight from Chkalovsky Air Base; he and flight instructor Vladimir Seryogin died when their MiG-15UTI crashed near the town of Kirzhach. After a state funeral, their ashes were entombed in the Kremlin Wall Necropolis on Red Square.

Heroism NEVER dies… it just transfers to another dimension, that’s all…

Вечная память, Юрий Алексеевич…
