hello Board!
for you interest I repost the original posting from Russian aviation history forum, talking about the questions to the veteran of 168 IAP  http://vif2ne.ru/nvi/forum/13/co/85362.htm
Particularly your interest could be to this picture of Yak-9B from esq. "Moskva" 168 IAP.
Isn't a  beauty? Smiley
 


It is not know (yet) who was the pilot of this Yak-9B. But please pay attention to the note on the engine cowling "Za IVANOVA!" (For IVANOV!). It is dedicated to the airmen of 168 IAP from 1 esq. - lt. Ivanov Viacheslav Alekseevich who was KIA on 18.02.1945.
As well one could note a light band (1m width)  on the fuselage - this is the sign of the all 130 IAD to which 168 IAP was assigned. For the 168 IAP particularly the sign to distinguish was the spinner in Red color. Carried a standard camo - AMT12+11 and AMT-7
Totally there were 12 Yak-9B "Moskva" (originally Yak-9D of factory Nr.153 modifyed to Yak-9B at Nr.301) assigned to 168 IAP on 13.06.1944 at Himki airfield.

Very nice!  Welcome to the new board, Audrius.

Now, what are those guys doing blocking our view of the aircraft!?  It looks as if the "za Ivanova" was simply hand written with chalk or something.  Maybe for the purpose of the photo.

Hi Audrius,
really a beautiful image. Thanks for posting it.
Two different slogans on the same plane is an uncommon practise. Should I start to draw profiles of Yaks, this could be one of the first to be made.
Do you know if the slogan Moskva was on both sides or on one only?
Best regards

hi Massimo

As far is known the "Moskva" inscripton was only on the right board of Yak-9. There was a quite full article on the short history of this esquadrille in one of the M-Hobby magazine issue. Given some profiles with some pictures beside.

If you would drawn the profile of this Yak, it would be nice contribution to the site. Why not.

BTW, A.Drabkin provided with the name of the pilot - Haila Aleksandr Fiodorovich
A. Drabkin had a meeting with him and the interview should be published on Artiom's site : www.iremember.ru

hi John and thanks for wellcome!  Smiley

It looks as if the "za Ivanova" was simply hand written with chalk or something.  Maybe for the purpose of the photo.

I would agree that it is hand written. But I doubt that this is a chalk. I think it is painted in white with red outline as the main inscription was.
Ther reason for aplying "Za Ivanova" was too seriuos to be simply chalk! The comrade was KIA and that is not fun at all. The pilot of this Yak-9 pilot Haila A.F. was the deputy of the 1st esquadrille's  comander.

Thanks Audrius.  Smiley It is a long term project. I hope to continue Lavochkins and to try to repeat the work on MiG-3.
To tell the truth, in last 3 years there was a true rain of news on MiG-3: books, new photos, restoration projects.... the field of Lavochkins is more static.
By the way, do you know if the La-7 of Monino survived to the fire or was destroyed?
Best regards

hello

In regard to publications yes, but not in models Smiley

By the way, do you know if the La-7 of Monino survived to the fire or was destroyed?

AFIK La-7 and other planes surrived, because at the fire time they were on the open air stand. The biggest loss was to the pre-war period history, most documents were burned..unfortunatelly..... Cry

Hi Audrius, Smiley
the news on MiG-3 are fairly relevant: the model by Trumpeter, some decals sheets, many resin sets... not bad. Now I am waiting that someone resolves the problem of 1/72, I heard about a Trumpeter kit. I hope it is true.

The planes survived... well, this is already better than I thought.

There should appear an interview with the pilot of 168 IAP that served in the 1st esq. "Moskva", on Russian site. After publishing overthere I will give a link here. So please stay tuned to this forum to get the news!  Wink

Only profiles Cry
I've found them by following the links in Audrius' post. Unfortunately this site is not updated since 2001, so don't expect a mine of drawings.
