US bomber B-24 Liberator of USAAF 465th Bomber Group after crash landing in the Poltava airfield, Ukraine, Jan 4, 1945. Poltava was the main airfield of Operation Frantic, a USAAF "shuttle bombing" operation sending bombers to hit German targets and then land in locations in the USSR. This system extended the range of US bombing significantly. The operation though fizzled out because of Russian underlying hostility and refusal to protect the Frantic bases adequately.
