Tuvan Plane will be Named After Khomushku Churgui-ool

Khomushku Churgui-ool. Photo from only plane belonging to the republic will be named after Khomushku Churgui-ool, Hero of the Soviet Union. This decision was made by the Tuvan Government on the initiative coming from the InterAvia, air company operating the plane. Khomushku Churgui-ool was among the first Tuvan volunteers fighting for the Soviet Union in World War II. Ex-tractor driver in war time he drove a tank and in one of the battles for Ukraine showed extraordinary heroism facing the prevailing rival forces for which was the first of Tuvans to be awarded with the Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union. After the war was over he could not fit into the peaceful reality. He died in 1978, overriden in the wheat field by a tractor while he was asleep after much drinking.
