This is one of only two remaining original Yak-3s the other being in the Musee de L'Air in Paris. It was built in the late stages of the Second World War and powered by a Klimov engine, was a poweful adversary to the Germans. It is seen in a Soviet Airforce livery and is on loan to the Commemorative Airforce Museum. The lengthy slogan on this side of the aircraft translates to"The 2nd aircraft from Golovatyy - for the terminal rout of the enemy."
