Viktor, Vodka and Raw Fish – by John M. Proctor

VIKTOR, VODKA, AND RAW FISH—On August 19, 1991, the world watched in awe as the Soviet Union was rocked by a coup d’etat that would change the face of Eastern Europe forever. And just as the Communist era was ending, an American-owned Cessna left Soviet airspace after a flight across Russia to promote international aviation friendship. This captivating tale is told in John Proctor’s book and captured on video, produced by cinematographer/pilot Rick Roessler. Due to the adverse conditions of the trip, of the six pilots that began (including famed Russian acrobatic champion Viktor Smolin) John Proctor was the only one who flew the entire route around the world, spending 32 days in Russian airspace. 89 minute VIDEO in stereo – $19.95. 300 page BOOK with 32 color photos – $19.95.*
