This is the early type Yak-1 of the pilot Georgiy Nikanorovich Zhidov, later Hero of the Soviet Union, of the 123 IAP of the 7th  IAK PVO (Leningrad Air Defense). 
We see a mechanic refueling it. Note the parachute on the wing, thus the photo is taken right before the mission. 
The photo was taken on 15 April 1942 on the ice of Ladoga Lake. That day the regiment performed ground attack sorties.
