French Pilot in front of his LaGG-3
Here we see a French fighter pilot, probably from the Régiment de Chasse Normandie, a Free-French unit that fought on the Eastern Front, being congratulated by a Soviet Air Force captain. The aircraft behind them is probably a LaGG-3, identified by the shape of the air intake below the nose, although the regiment isn't recorded as operating that type.
