CN Su-2 209BAP W18 Govorukhin Russia 1942
Su-2 'White 18', unknown pilot, 209 BAP, USSR, spring 1942. Text courtesy of Erik Pilawskii (vvs.hobbyvista.com) - Some years ago a profile of this aircraft appeared in Krilya Pobedi magazine. It had been drawn by one of the better KP artists, and in general it was accepted to be genuine. At that time, the aircraft was attributed to at Lt. Govorukhin of the 209 BAP. Some years on, two photographs of the very pilot, L.A. Govorukhin and his aircraft, have been published in Khazanov and Gordyukov's book on the Su-2. Lo and behold, looking to these photos, it seems that the profile could, at least, be this aircraft. Better photos will be needed to say for certain. "18" seems to be wearing a fairly typical application for the Su-2s of this time in AII Green/Brown/Blue. A fair amount of MK-7 white distemper has been applied for seasonal camouflage (these photos date from spring/42), and as usual shows considerable wear. The original tactical number might have been on the lower fin, and a replacement looks to have been added by hand in MK-7 finish onto the aft fuselage. The black spinner seems to have been dusted with MK-7, as well. The aircraft wore black bordered national stars in six positions, as shown.
