Cool! Those stripes on the middle TB-3 are interesting.
I guessing the planes in the foreground are some variant of AMT green but the one furthest away, white? In summer? And the stripes are dark enough to be red. (or blue or green or black etc.) Training plane? Special Commemorative scheme?


Any idea on what is scrawled on Cpt. Buffons plane?


They promised me a cruise on the Baltic after my 25th victory. Some "cruise" eh?

Looks like some tosspot has scrawled in pencil or ink on the original photo of Bouffons sometime over the past 70 years, probably the photo catalogue number.

As for the TB-3's, the original caption was in Russian, here's what google translate churned out-
"Heavy bombers TB-3 and multipurpose aircraft F-6 (right) at the airport. The presence in the frame R-6 suggests that the picture was taken at the airport one of the air army special forces (AON), which began to form in 1937 In 1940, after the Soviet-Finnish War, AON were converted to long-range bombers. The plane in the foreground and the board "2" - modification of TB-3-4M-17, a light in the background - probably a TB-3-4M-34."
