Hiuaz Kairovna Dospanova: the only female pilot & navigator from Kazakhstan to serve during WWII. From May 1942 she served as navigator & later became head of communication of the 46th Guards Night Bomber Regiment—referred to as the Night Witches. Dospanova made 300+ combat missions & was injured in 1943 while landing in blackout conditions. She survived the crash but fractured her legs. 3 months later, she returned to keep fighting, going all the way to Berlin for victory.

9/11 - heart-stopping photography. The day that forever changed the way the world thinks. I was in absolute disbelief witnessing before my very eyes this terrible tragedy unfold. Terrorism at its absolute most evil. Innocent lives lost. Emergency personnel helping perished with the victims they were trying to help. Was like watching a Hollywood blockbuster film. R.I.P fallen ones
