Hi Steph,
good point. At least there is something sure enough for a profile on plane 75.

Hi all,
I had a look again to this interesting topic.


I think that the style of rails for the sliding hood makes the idea of La-5F more likely than of a La-5FN.
The early style of canopy, predominant on La-5F, had a slighly curved upper profile, and its rails at first raised a bit (but this part is hidden by the canopy itself), then were slightly descending, parallel and close to the window's edge, and had not a vertical slot at its end. Exactly what we see on this photo.
The later type of canopy was jettisonable; it had straight upper profile, and rails parallel to the lower frame of the sliding hood, far and not parallel from the frame of the rear canopy, and end with an upwards slot. It's not fully clear when it was introduced, but it's by far the dominant type on La-5FN.

Massimo

Hi Massimo,

if you increase the light and you reduce the contrast, we can see the heat-protecting panel of a La-5FN

Hi Steph,
yes, I see it. Surely an FN, then.

Hello,

I bought the book "The Aircraft of Soviet Aces" by Mikhail Bykov

and I can confirm that the La-5fn "White 75" was flown by Popkov. This is originally the Evgeni Yaremenko aircraft during Spring and Summer 1944.
http://soviet-aces-1936-53.ru/abc/y/yaremenko.htm

There is an inscription behind Popkov not visible on the photo: "Комсомолец Дальстроя" but visible on another photo shown in the book on page 85.

Hi Steph,
the book looks very interesting.
An inscription on the side of plane n.75, you mean? Could you scan it when you find some time, please?

Hello,
Istvan, I bought the book in this shop in Russia
http://fiction.eksmo.ru/book/1650706-samolety-sovetskikh-asov-boevaya-raskraska-stalinskikh-sokolov/

You can also try here with some extract of the book:
http://www.labirint.ru/books/540514/

Some info here on the forum
http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=1863.0

Massimo, yes,  the inscription is on the port side of the fuselage. No problem for a scan, but I don't know the law about posting an extract or a photo from a book...

Regards
St?ph
