Hi,
this article has a pair of photos of Yak-9 after the war; a plane is characterized by the bort number on the nose.

A couple of "martin bombers", as said on the back of the photo.  Grin

Nice photos, thank you for sharing. It is interesting to see that there is still the star over the wing, badly contoured by the green blotches.

Of particular interest is that one is an earlier flat-engined, and another is a sharp-engined example,
but camouflage and location are the same.

You're right. There was a difference in speed, it was unappropriate to fly them in mixed formations.

A link from Timoshenko:

around 9:25 there is a formation of 5 I-16 (presumably type 5) that have an interesting inscription 'privet' (hello) under their wing for some parade in late '30s.

Very good image. the plane seems built in factory 31 because of the small star on the fin.
Interestingly, the black areas are less extended than the green ones, that is unusual.
Note the change of the shade of green between metallic and wooden areas.

What came first the chicken or the bort#?

Was looking at the war thunder site for the Russians when I came across a photo of a well known LA-5 that shows it with a bort where all other known images show it without.

Very nice plane. I wonder if it is sure that it was a La-5F and not a FN.
Photos seem nearly identical in position and other details. I wonder if the small photo was retouched with the white area to allow the eagle to be clearly visible on some magazine.

This seems plausible.
It is strange that the raptor covers the number 4 in the manner that it does.

Thanks.
Should I draw a profile, it would be without the white area that seems a fake. Other images of planes of the same unit would be needed. Besides I am not convinced about the lack of the mast, there is something in the photo that could be a pole on the background, but has a suspicious resemblance to an out of standard mast, or a mast casually overposed to a pole on the background.
