Caption: Chelyuskin search and rescue in 1934. Aeroplane after landing in Provideniya Bay in the far north-east of Russia, to rescue the crew and passengers on the ship Chelyuskin. This Soviet ship left port in 1933 on a voyage of exploration through the Arctic, but subsequently got stuck in the ice. This aeroplane was flown by the Soviet aviator Anatoly Liapidevsky. Along with the other rescuers, he was one of the first recipients of the title Hero of the Soviet Union. Photographed in February 1934.
