which I am amazed have not generated any comments.  The posts on Facebook have no information about the images,  and if they are colourised they look to have been well done.

I'm guessing they are post war , (note trees in leaf and non dispersal of the planes) , on captured film or camera,

this is fascinating, note yellow bort  numbers on the Yak-9s, but silver spinner and rudders,  and the different apperance of colour on the Lavochkin, the mostly green Il-2s and the pale Tu-2

Which I am wondering if quite shifted to green as all the upper colours look very green.

Looking at these I'd think there must be more from this series.

If they are real, then they are 'wow'  and hope for more!

Hi Troy, hi Warhawk!

those photos are from the 1945 musical comedy "Nebesniy tihohod"...

yes, there is more - you can watch тихоход movie on youtube at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77iGNCLUKVA
scenes with Yak-9s and Po-2s lineup are at 1:18:45 to 1:20:10

more clips from the original movie:

IMHO, the pale ones are Peshkas. The Lavochkin is quite strange, that is one thing that points my guess to photo colorization...

Hi,
of course the photos are colorized. Photocolors of that time, even when available, didn't give so uniform and convincing colors.
The work is very well made, but I doubt that who colorized the images had a  knowledge of Soviet colors better of what is commonly known.
A very nice page with colorized wartime photos is here (few planes, many people):

Technically, these are not colorized photos/images; those are stills from a digitally colorized movie.  Check my last post and Wikipedia link  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavenly_Slug

In 2012 the film went through colorization. It was also fully restored - this time with original scenes and voices.


Russian wikipedia provides a bit more details:

К 2012 году по заказу ?Первого канала? были завершены работы по реставрации и колоризации фильма[1][2]. В колоризированной версии фильм был показан 6 мая 2012 года. Цветная версия была без купюр, включая оригинальные голоса персонажей, в том числе и голос Фаины Раневской.

-Colorized movie can be watched at youtube in HD at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVlaA5emmBI&list=PLywEHcCTwUPg0FJk7xkf0-udcfRb8zq8_

-Original black and white version in HD at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37vQory-vVY
