Sweet! Engineer's Secret Flight Into Communist Russia to Rescue Love of His Life
How far would YOU go for love? British engineer Brian Grover had an interesting answer to that question; in 1938 he learned how to fly a plane, flew illegally into communist Russia, crash-landed, wound up captured and got tossed into a Soviet jail cell. But, he says, it was all worth it.
Why'd he go through all that crazy drama? Well, for love, naturally. Unless maybe it just seemed like a good idea at the time.
