|I visited the Khodinka museum in May of 1994. I noticed the Yak-52 (right) in
nazi markings. No one could answer my questions as to why this airplane was
marked the way it was. On May 9th, I got my answer. They were dedicating a
new war memorial in Moscow. Part of the commeration was a "dogfight"
between the Russians and nazi invaders. This Yak was to be the loser. I
assume the Yak-55 (middle) and the other Yak-52 (left) would be the ones to
save Mother Russia once again. I was at the dedication, I saw Boris Yeltsin,
but I did not see the "dogfight".
