Wartime colour (Kodachrome) photo of a VVS Yak-9

Hello!

At the airforce.ru -forum one can now see a period colour photo of VVS Yak-9. If I got it right this is a Kodacrome photo taken at Bari during the war and the plane is Yak-9DD. Apparently the colour photo is published in some Polish magazine article. At least I would like to know the article details to be able to obtain the magazine issue.

Link to the post containing the photo:

I think this is of interest for many. Certainly it is for me as this photo once again shows that there existed stars surrounded with silver colour. I have yet to see any artifact or colour photo of one showing yellow surrounding. Would love to hear if such things exist somewhere.

I just bought a pair of original photos showing a bellied single-seat Il-2, Nr. White 2, where the edge around the fuselage and tail star is definitely not white. I'd say 99% that it's yellow.

Hello!

You have colour photos of yellow-edged VVS stars? There are numerous b/w photos showing seemingly non-white edges. Yet that is no confirmation of them being in yellow.

During the years between my original posting (2005) and present time I have seen one Finnish document about a pair of Il-2s observed with yellow noses and star surrounds. The observation was made in very early hours of morning so still not a 100% verification. That was over Lake Ladoga late Summer 1944. May have been artillery spotters or reconnaissance planes. Those had different marking rules for rapid recognition.

Recceswind. I do not have the colour photo, it was posted by someone else.


Cheers,
Kari
