Polikarpov Rata by AveragePhotographer Polikarpov Rata by AveragePhotographer
The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum's preserved Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 Rata in the hanger at Paine Field. Taken with my Nikon D7200. The Rata was the world's first ever cantilever monoplane with retractable landing gear. Though technologically inferior to some of the later fighter planes developed during WWII, it was still the backbone of the Soviet Air Force at the start of the war and served until 1943.
