Something what attracted me from his site related to this site:

Very detalied! (I doubt the spinner is red - source http://ava.org.ru/shap/566/566-shap-1944-max.jpg )... But just stunning:

Hi,
the detail of men is impressive. Though, the plane isn't very well made, I see red areas on the blades and tooth, and the camo is unreliable. I see that the spinner is matt while red paint should be glossy.
Some cleaning of white dots could have improved the image too.

Drums!!! New her work:

https://klimbim2014.wordpress.com/2018/02/17/night-witches-%d0%bd%d0%be%d1%87%d0%bd%d1%8b%d0%b5-%d0%b2%d0%b5%d0%b4%d1%8c%d0%bc%d1%8b/

I see this foto in such HD resolution the 1st time. What a type of (tri-motor?) plane at the background?

She interpreted the camouflage as green, but here as gray-blue : https://klimbim2014.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/soviet-air-force-officers-rufina-gasheva-848-night-combat-missions-and-nataly-meklin-980-night-combat-missions-decorated-as-heroes-of-the-soviet-union-for-their-service-with-the-famed-night-witche/
Strange...

Hi,
beautiful images indeed.
I don't exclude that Po-2s could have been painted in 2 greys in 1945, but this colorizing ignores the camouflage well visible on the tail of the bw version.

She is just a woman (not a history nuts like we are), so don't ask too much from her Wink
BTW I'd not say "the camouflage well visible on the tail".

Also I inspired some discussions on the russian forums. There are many versions about the misterious planes at the background. I think most probably the trimotor is SM.81, and 3 biplanes around are P-5 or R-5L PR-5 or or Po-2S.

Hi,
I thought to an SM-81 too, but looked strange. Is the photo of 1945?

Yes, June 1945. What you mean "strange" , too small?

Hi, I meant that it is strange to see this type in 1945, in Germany after the defeat. it was a very old Italian type.
