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.
Everything is simple and functional.
As opposed to the tail wheel of Yak-546U, for example, this one has a tread!
It is ready to come out!
This is the engine.
The speed is about 140 km/h.
Crosswind for such an aircraft is an evil enemy!
Its length is more than nine meters (29.5 ft)!
Now the plane is flying over the Moscow river.
The destiny of this YAK plane could be much worse, but thanks to some enthusiasts it will have many new flights.
