About the Author

Yefim Gordon was born in 1950 in Vilnius, Lithuania, and graduated from the Kaunas Polytechnical Institute in 1972 as an engineer and electronics designer. He has been a resident of Moscow since 1973, when, as a hobby, he started collecting photographs and books on the history of Soviet aviation. This has now developed into a major archive. Since the 1980s, he has been a professional aviation journalist and writer, with over eighty books published on Soviet/Russian aviation in Russian, English, Polish, and Czech, as well as close to 120 magazine features and photo reports. He is also an accomplished photographer, with countless photos published in the Western press; the current edition of Jane's "All the World's Aircraft" features more than fifty of his photographs.
