Artist's Description

Extensively remanufactured, this Polikarpov I-15bis is the only airworthy example of its kind in Europe. A pretty little sesquiplane fighter that was used extensively by the Russian Air Force during the late 30s and early 40s. It is possibly the only combat aircraft ever designed in prison (Nikolai Polikarpov had been jailed by Stalin for not working fast enough!). Photographed at Duxford in 2007 while operated by the Fighter Collection.
