Re: VVS P-39 loss list ?

Totally true Gabor though from my records and photos of the units involved
on 1st Iasi Kishinew Offensive none had red outline , and if some they did
then would highly unusual and I have no such records or photos to ID with

That's too bad, let's wait for a good dataplate then for proper ID.

Gabor

I agree ,of particular interest to me would be to determine
if this rare fuselage marking was standard with this Avia Reg
or just for a senior pilot. Then I may be able to go through
details and trace the pilot and his Reg

Hi Gabor,
On individual aircraft of the 69 GIAP 304 IAD had such a marking - for example:
*http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/9810/...4ca72_orig.jpg
http://ava.org.ru/iap/69g/p39_shikunov_21.jpg
And also possible in 129 GIAP 205 IAD:

But it can not be ruled out that this is an aircraft of any regiment (from 6) two divizions 7 IAK (205 IAD or 304 IAD).

Best regards,
Kirill

Thanks Kirill,
Very similar numbers indeed. Some of them have very well visible red outlines. Let's hope a dataplate will be found to determine its identity. Thanks,
Gabor
