         Who was the Soviet agent at Malta -- oops -- did you mean 
Yalta?  I knew about the National Socialist acronym.

         That "Soviet" DC-3 may have been one that was reverse engineered 
from some US planes that were forced to land in Siberia.  (Forced by bad 
weather and lack of fuel for the return trip to a US-controlled 
base.)  Stalin refused to return the planes -- in effect he stole them.  I 
don't know what happened to the crews.  I also cannot remember where I read 
about this.
