9 New Life For The Yak 12 Plane

New Life For The Yak 12 Plane

Posted on December 25, 2012 by team

Not so long ago this YAK-12 was lying in a dusty hangar fully disassembled but today it is almost like new! Now this big and powerful plane works for Aeroflot.

Now you have a chance to see the last moments before the plane started to live its new life.

The plane has been also painted. It is getting ready to go outiside where the screw will be assembled.

The enigine’s power is 360 hp.

It’s the space under the dashboard.

Bald heads will soon turn red if they do not hang curtains here…

The round handle is a propeller pitch.

    Very nice,that is a wonderful engine and is used a lot in america,on reproduction aircraft ,the dealer is just a few miles away from me.

    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.
