  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
