Is this the C-47 that was delivered to Russia a couple of years ago?

No, it is original Lisunov Li-2. (But indeed the Li-2 type was built based on DC-3/C-47)

what's the third aircraft with touch's of blue
I'd be willing to bet the third aircraft is
Antonov An-2 (HA-MAY).

Took me a while to see that there are in fact 3 aircraft. Interesting photo. Thank you.

Now that's what you call a formation flight, great capture.

Great Shot! But that is not a DC-3/C47 but a Russian knock-off? Like they did for the B29 and several others? No NIH syndrome in the old Soviet Union, I guess?
The Lisunov Li-2 was built in Russia under a license from Douglas. Other than minor modifications (change to metric dimensions and material) it was a DC-3 with Russian engines. And the engines were a Russian copy of the Wright R-1820's.

Fun picture with the AN-2's!!
O.K. you young whipper-snappers, The Russians were our Allies when Lisunov licensed the manufacture of DC-3s under the "Lend-Lease" program early in WW-II. The B-29 & Tu-4 story was different, with Postwar espionage and reverse engineering involved. Look up the real stories they are worth it.
