Those Yak-7s are strange indeed. I wonder if they are really so dark as they seem, particularly for the undersurfaces.

The uniforms look Naval uniforms, as seen on the Yak-7 photo with non standard colours from here http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/colors/1943-45-fighters/1943-45.html



Perhaps another Naval unit variation?

Given the small image size, it could just be very faded AMT-11/12,  there might be traces of the camo pattern on the wing.

And, there is precedent for an overall grey repaint on the famous war-weary Sharkmouth La-5.

Just some suggestions, no proof.

Yes, a good interview.  Pity that it doesn't say anything unknown on the La-5FN of the photo.
