This excellent unpublished photo shows many Soviet pilots and ground crew with different styles of uniforms.  
I have slightly faded the background to give the idea of a slight mist.  
The aircraft and the pilots are of 180 IAP (later made a Guard regiment as 30 GIAP), 6 IAK PVO.  
They landed at Borki airfield, near Moscow, on 17 October 1941.  
The photo was probably shot on late October or November 1941.
