Nadezhda Popova Dies at 91

Farewell, Надежда Василевна! Blue skies and tailwinds.

See the NYTimes obit: “Nadezhda Popova, WWII ‘Night Witch,’ Dies at 91

“I sometimes stare into the blackness and close my eyes. I can still imagine myself as a young girl, up there in my little bomber. And I ask myself, ‘Nadia, how did you do it?’” -Popova, as quoted in the NYTimes article.
