Anymore information on Captain Lobanov's  aircraft #30?
Specifically would it have had a red nose like some of the other aircraft in the link?

Hi,
great image and good link.
I have something related on a rough La-5 page that is not yet linked:


Plane n.70 of St. Lt. Sementsov of 41 GIAP, Ukraine 1944. It was characterized by a red hearth on both sides of the cowling. (Photo: EP pag.58)

The white cap on the tail was typical of planes of 8 GIAD, to which 41 GIAP belonged.

Thanks to Aleksandr Ruchkovsky.


About the red nose, I think that it is something that was added on Lavochkins in late 1944, so seeing it or not depends on the time of the photo.

Regards
Massimo

Excellent profile.

Some art work from the link I posted showing the same scheme.

Excellent photos.
Just I would see a tail of this unit to check if there is anything particular.
