The Russian photo can be found here:

The look of the photo is consistent with other Soviet WW2 photos that I've seen. The Mig 3 could have taken a hit to the wheel cover retraction apparatus, leaving the door hanging down.

The hangar on board HMS ARGUS, with the base of the lift in the foreground, and a line of Hawker Sea Hurricanes, with several mechanics working on them, running to the back of the hangar.

Prototype Do-335 Pfeil, followed by it's full production variants, then a series of improved prototypes based on existing aircraft for ease of production and inter-changeability of parts. To replace the very out-dated and aging Stuka Dive-bomber, the Luftwaffe adopts the Ju-287 Staghund. Based around a similar wing design and purpose but with a much more powerful engine and secondary water-injection booster, the Ju-287 marks a new stage in the airwar over Britain

That's not the Ju 287 - that is merely a moder what-if rendering.

 

The real ju 287 looked like this:

It was a bitsa - bitsa this and bitsa that. The fuselage was from the Heinkel He 177, the main wings were new. Landing gear came froma couple of different aircraft - I believe the nose gear was from B-24s.

Not much info on this one. Anyone want to take a shot at indentifying these aircraft...?8bb97317e0fd986d7c462d756cca9f67.jpg

The air battle in the Kuban. Mounted in a few episodes of the composition, which gives an idea of ​​the air battle during the Second World War. The photo shows Soviet MiG-3 and Yak-9 fighters, one downed German Junkers Ju-88 bomber. If you look closely, above and to the left can be seen the last point – it is three combat aircraft.

The air battle in the Kuban – a series of large-scale battles against the Soviet Air Force Luftwaffe in April – June 1943 over the River Kuban and Taman Peninsula and Novorossiysk during the Great Patriotic War, in order to capture the strategic air supremacy over bridgehead of German troops in the Kuban. In Soviet historiography considered as part of the Battle of the Caucasus.
