Syastoslav Filevich was a flight navigator in the Soviet Red Air Force during World War III. He was assigned to the Tu-4 piloted by Boris Gribkov in January 1952. The crew began training for mid-air refueling, using a technique based on one the Germans had actually attempted to use to refuel their submarines.[1]

In May 1952, he participated in the atomic bombing of Washington, DC.[2] The crew ditched in the ocean, and were picked up by the submarine S-71, commanded by Alexei Vavilov.[3]
