Dear Friends:

A few 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.

Lavochkin La-5FN seen in Wings of Russia.

The Lavochkin La-5 was a Soviet fighter aircraft of World War II. The design bureau fit its predecessor, the Lavochkin LaGG-3, with a Shvetsov ASh-82 radial engine in order to solve the problems of the originally underpowered airframe. Quickly, after a thousand aircraft were built, a new variant was produced with further upgrades (the most visible being the new canopy allowing a better rearward view). A fuel-injected engine, further lightening of the aircraft, and fixed slats to improve all-around performance were also features of the La-5FN. A dedicated two-seater trainer version was named La-5 UTI. Despite the great number of airframes built from 1942 to the end of the war, only the Czechoslovakian Air Force operated the La-5 outside the USSR.

A total of 9,920 Lavochkin La-5s of all variants have been built.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Lavochkin La-5.
