Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

The company was founded in 1937 as OKB-301, OKB meaning a Soviet aircraft design bureau. It really took the name of NPO Lavochkin in 1960 after the death of his head designer, Semyon Lavochkin who was in such charge since October 1945. In the very first stages, the OKB designed aircraft under the troïka Lavochkin-Gorbunov-Gudkov, Vladimir P. Gorbunov being the first head designer.
After the unsatisfactory La-150 was eventually stopped in 1959, the company became a major player in the Russian space program. It designed some of the most important missiles systems, like the S-75 Dvina (SA-2 "Guideline") or the current La-205, Surface to Air Missile of the S-25 system, better known as the V-300.

This page shows a list of Lavochkin aircraft that have featured in films referenced on The Internet Movie Plane Database.
