Hi,
seems that white spiral on red prop spinner was quite popular on Yaks at the end of war:

1.) Yak-3, Ermokhin, 402 iap:




2.) Yak-9x, 900 iap:

probably/reportedly this Golovachev's Yak-9M:



3.) Yak-9M, 513 iap:



4.) Somewhere in Bulgaria:


regards,

Hi Misos, I suggest to draw it on your profile of Yak-9 of Golovachev. Maybe it was useful to hypnotize enemy pilots.

Hi Massimo,
that spinner looks black with white spiral like on German Bf-109. However, the face of Golovatchev is also pretty dark, Is it due to filter/photo material and spinner is red?

Hi, I not affirmed this photo with spiral is Golovachev's plane. But we see the spirals used in 900 iap, so very decorated Golovachev's plane should had spiral too. "Highly likely".

And I vote for red color Smiley
And the logic votes too, I think!

That's not conventional method of warfare!
