    My car is much more complicated than this plane but still it doesn’t fly.

    Great photos. Interesting subject.

    Sweet airplane. I always notice the distinctive gill vanes that Russian planes use on their radial engine installations. Obviously a colder climate. A similar radial powered Cessna 195 or Beech Staggerwing just lets the jugs hang out there in the open under a round engine cowl.

    Beautiful plane. The russian equivalent to the canadian DHC-2 Beaver, maybe.

    what are those two pictures where yellow wings and another cockpit can be seen? that’s clearly another aircraft. the author of this article was high on weed again …

    Nice airplane with a very nice restoration. The “chase” plane appears to be another excellent restoration. Yak 18T perhaps?

    Please tell the clown with the distortion lens to pound sand.

    I would really like to have had a clear view of the plane without that junk.

    I found that one polish variant of the Yak-12, the PZL-101 Gawron, was flown here, in Spain, at beginning of the 60′ years, like crop duster.
