The test pilot Nikolay Kozlov was performing a test flight in the Odessa Region in April 1986, when the engines of his plane suddenly failed. Kozlov continued piloting the disabled machine until the very last moment in order to crash land it as far from the town as possible. The plane crashed well outside any settlements. Nikolay was killed, and the grateful residents of the town of Balt named a street after the hero, our fellow countryman.
