soviet union,

May 28

In 1987, in one of the stranger episodes in the already-bizarre Cold War, West German teenager Mathias Rust landed a single-engine Cessna in Red Square in Moscow.

 So it turned out that after 40 years of a tense standoff with NATO, Soviet air defenses could be easily breached by some schmuck in a recreational airplane.

 It’s pretty safe to say that several people lost their jobs over the incident.

Gotta love how a lot of soviet military hardware came with a big asterisk for their use!
