Some updates about La-5s

http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/la5/la5/15of193iap/15of193iap.html




This one was obtained by increasing the contrast of a photo that seemed to show a plane without numbers:

Cool. I very interested in 193 iap, where the photos come from?

BTW, 1942 may be a typo?

Hi Vlad,
both photos are shown at pag.14-15 of the Czech monograph La-5 of Milos vestsik, MBI. There is a Russian edition too.
The caption at pag 15 says that the photo is of July 1943, Skorodnoye airfield. Yes, 42 was a typo, I've corrected it, thank you.
The other photo is at pag 14; it doesn't say the unit, but the plane and its markings are identical to n.15.
Regards
Massimo

Hi all,
new photos of the plane with the pierced heart have emerged:

the profile will require some correction, particularly on the supposed band on the lower surface, that now looks more as a patch on the side surface.
