Girls--pilot a plane! -- How can you photograph such misery? -- When you get to the front you can wrap your feet in newspaper -- So, they are taking even young girls -- Why are you leaving us, children? -- She's just a young girl, hasn't seen people die -- No talking in the ranks! -- Stop flirting! There's a war on! -- An aircraft you could use to fight -- You ask how we drop bombs? -- It's simply wonderful! Imagine the speed! -- A whole lifetime older -- See that? Your planes have proved themselves -- Nails should be made out of people like these -- Poetry and prose -- But we'll beat them. We just have to not go soft -- What a misfortune, what a useless death -- Not one step back -- We can do anything, we never surrender -- Falling like vultures -- Blazing away in all directions -- You darling, you've shot down a Heinkel! -- Here goes! -- My sweet, winged Yak is a good machine -- Caucasus -- Are they young women, or scarecrows from the vegetable patch? -- We did not need to look for the target -- People are saying Boris Yeremin is scared of us -- If they get killed, you answer for it to me -- Marina Raskova, hero of the Soviet Union, great Russian aviatrix, has concluded her glorious career -- Why would you want to expose yourself to deadly danger? -- Street women and all sorts of madcaps -- Despite the pain continued to fight the enemy -- The worst death -- Undue self-confidence, self-regard and lack of discipline -- Move it will you? She's going to blow up -- Katya's return -- I cried like I had never cried before -- I want to fly a mission. This is no time to rest -- Every word brings back again and again the grief and pain -- Wh-what kind of men are you not to be able to keep one g-girl safe?
