Ivanov's Landing

A group of aviation cadets at the Gatchina Military Flying School near Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) point fingers of scorn at a student pilot identified only as "Ivanov" after his less than perfect landing, fortunately injuring only his dignity.The photograph comes from the collection of Alexander Riaboff (1895-1984).
