In the mid-80's, at the height of the Cold War, Herl Vladosk, a Russian military pilot, struggling under the pressure of Communism and fearing the future for his wife and children, made the decision to defect. Motivation he had, but no opportunity. A possible escape means became available when he was given an extra duty assignment evaluating a highly classified, test-bed aircraft. He began to develop a plan. Somehow, someway, if he could get his family on board and get enough lead-time, he would fly across the Bering Sea to Alaska. He made a flight plan, committing every detail to memory. He was ready. Still, no opportunity. He continued to fly the test missions from his base in east Russia. His squadron commander, not privy to the classified flights, continued to make life more miserable each day. The copilot who had been sent to fly with him, he was convinced, was also an undercover agent, probably of the secret KGB. Pressure continued to build on Vladosk and his family. The break came when a typhoon hit a northeastern Russia town causing catastrophic damage. Vladosk was directed to make emergency flights to the town. On a second supply run, in the dark of night, Vladosk ws able to get is family aboard. (He had left his copilot at the devastated town to assist the mayor.) This time, with his family hidden during offloading of the supplies, he simulated a crash at sea after takeoff and made his break. Flying at low level through the remnants of the typhoon, his defection was undetected until too late for interception by Russian aircraft. Finally, picked up as a faint radar return by an Aleutian Island Air Defense Command observer, U.S. F-15 interceptors were launched. The Russian high command, determined that this aircraft not fall into American hands, advised it was being flown by a deranged pilot intent on bombing Anchorage. They insisted that it be shot down before reaching landfall.
