Great photo! It would be interesting to know more. The absence of the number on the fuselage is noteworty and the plane looks fully repainted after the war.
The page is nice too, has sharp images.

The name in the link is "Leninsky Komsomol" I thought this was one of the men in the photo. Come to find out it was a former early communist leader who had ships and a submarine class named after him as well as a flight training school at Chernihiv.

I posted this image on a Russian aviation site the only reply was the parachute is a post war era parachute. Cant make out the text behind the pilot and google translator can't seem to pick it up. Looks like the text may go on beyond the star and is obscured by both men in the image.

Also a rag laying on top of the vertical stabilizer partially hiding the painted tip.

Received some good feedback on the Russian site on Facebook.

https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=4382102045251970&set=gm.1107319040083326

It has the nose art and a partial description of the text.

Yes. 'Leninskiy' means 'Lenin's' and 'Komsomol' means 'Young Communists league'. Note the Komsomol emblem on the nose of the plane.

About the inscription, I can only see the words 'В Подарок' which means 'As a present' or 'For a present' but to WHOM is illegible, an obscured by the pilot, unfortunately

Pretty sure it's not Norway, nor 1944 (as the add title says), but the cammo sure is interesting:

Photo is from a member of the 214. Infanterie Division (Infantry Division) "Norwegen" (Norway), which is the name of the unit but not the location. It could well be Russia 1944 as the aircraft has an arrow wing.

Hi,
my impression is that the wing is strongly deformed, not an arrow. The lower part of the wing over the fuselage shows aileron balances, that are consistent with a plane of 1941. The markings seem prewar style.

Hi Massimo,

Yes, you are correct. Star might even have black outline.

Hi AaCee, it could be that some Russian researcher has more informations on this plane, maybe a photo where the canopy and the wing guns appear.
