Abstract : Recently, the Soviet lady pilot, wife of Cosmonaut No. 4, Marina Popovich, after taking off one early morning from the Moscow airfield in a Czech-made sports aircraft L-29, achieved great success. She flew at an altitude of 500 meters, at a closed circle route of 100 km at an average speed of 600 km/hr. This is a new sports achievement on the world scale, in the class of light sports jet aircraft weighing up to three tons. So far, no one has recorded such a type of flight in the charts of world records.
