  1. That’s what I call a “close shave.” 🙂
    And I couldn’t hear clearly, what else does the Yak factory produce?

  2. this pilot was definitely one lucky sob. See plane moment before almost reaching ground… the stick was totally pullen back and he was definitely praying.

  3. This is an obvious fake, you can see where the cut is. You should be more critical of a plane that dissapears in mid-air and appears at a lower altitude from behind some objects.

    • right, except that it’s not a fake.

      Dan McCue is the man that was sitting in the cockpit. Probably the most amazing thing about this is that it is a vintage WW2 yak-9. After landing the plane was inspected and cleared as having no damage to the airframe. That’s a pair of amazing stories right there.

    • Yeah, the beginning and the end as well. Actually in the first version (the real one), it wasn’t a plane. It was a flying Lada and the pilot was John Wayne, but you’re right. The middle part is not that good. You can almost see John Wayne driving it.

      Honestly, do you think people would spend hours on making such a fake?

  4. It’s kind of ironic that there are more airoworthy WW2 vintage ME-109 fighter planes today than Yaks. Go figure!
