Yak-9U caption translation

Could one of our Russian friends please translate the text in this picture for me?
I believe it makes reference to Fyodor Chubukov. I would in particular like to know if it states whether he flew this a/c.
Many thanks
Peter

Jak-9 from 29.GIAP, 7.AAF, Karelian front, winter 1944. Below is one from four planes which were built for funds of members of the theater of E. Vachtangov and gived to the airmens, heroes of USSR F. Chubakov, O. Archireev, P. Emelyanov and B. Loginov. (my note: the plane belovw carries inscription: Vachtangovec)

Re: Yak-9U caption translation

Thank you Peter! So there were 4 similar a/c, no doubt with 4 different numbers and perhaps 4 different slogans. Now to find the others ....
Thanks again
Peter

Re: Yak-9U caption translation

Hi Peter,
The aircrafts had airborne numbers 14, 16, 22 and 09. The emblem of the "Deer" during the ceremonial transfer of aircrafts was only on one plane.
Best regards,
Kirill

Re: Yak-9U caption translation

Thanks Kirill.
2 sources show red 14 with the deer, so hopefully that is correct.
Can anyone help with who the other 3, nos 14, 16 and 09, were allocated to?
Thanks
Peter
