Once Nikolai Konstantinovich sheltered a street dog. Every time the pilot returned from the flight, the dog waited for the owner in the aircraft parking lot. Once, after repairing the attack aircraft, it was necessary to fly around the airfield. Nikolai Konstantinovich decided to take the dog with him and go for a ride. He thought that there was still more room in the cockpit than in the fighter. And it is not customary to do a "loop" on it either. Nikolai Konstantinovich planted the dog with his muzzle back, attached his paws to the armored backrest and went flying.

Once aviator going to go to land, when the dog suddenly so much angry that the hair stood up on end. And barking dog right hoarse. Radchenko looked around, but saw no one. But this is not surprising, because the "IL" aircraft visibility is very bad, especially if you look back and down.

Still, the pilot felt that the dog is angry without reason and immediately sent a plane down into the left slide. At the same moment by the right wing of a huge number of bullets flew, and flew several aircraft Bf-109 and Fw-190.

Bf-109

 

From that moment, Nikolai Konstantinovich flew only with his dog, which always looked back and barked menacingly exclusively at the Bf-109 and Fw-190. He did not bark at non-enemy airplanes. Most importantly, the dog reacted even to airplanes that did not come into view, but came from below.

I wonder how a dog could distinguish the sound of enemy aircraft even over the noise of the engine?

The fact is very interesting! But do not forget that a dog's hearing sharper several orders of magnitude than that of humans, so she could easily distinguish the sounds of German planes and warn about the dangers of the host, which is also characteristic of the dogs. Dog Devotion saved the life of a man throughout history.

Writing in the article, is really a fact. Save the document and record chasnoe ochividtsev confirms it. German planes detect dog in any situation and at all times during the flight, and this is an exaggeration, we do not know, but it could be in many cases. The dog has a good memory, not weak intellect and excellent hearing. The sound she could hear before 1go mission that is the sound of the enemy could learn from its memory if ingested or used under Aktakom see people's reactions when raids Krauts. He is barking because it was aware of the danger, to themselves and each other, the dog man's best friend.

Animals are generally much wiser than we are. And smart people still know how to listen to them. A hearing and instinct in dogs really are that warn about a person, in principle, would have guessed ...

Yes, indeed this story is valid, it was !!!
