It looks like a modernised rear seat of something much older- brake lever? on the well worn stick, rest of cockpit is clean and barely used. How about a refurbished Harvard/Texan?

It looks like the back cockpit of a Russian trainer. Yak sprung to mind, but the 52 is different.
Am I close?

This aircraft is not from the Yak stable. Akubra you are correct it is the rear cockpit.

Hi "the incivil beast" welcome to the thread, only two posts and he has the right answer . It is indeed the PZL TS-8 Bies.

You have control, i.e. you post the next challenge.

evansb ha raggione ! Es ist sicher ein Grunau Baby IIb
Probably the most popular glider built before WWII (thousands) and after, in many countries.
Not exactly a high performance sailplane (max L/D=17), but a nice little one
Some more info
Incidentally, one has logged close to 3 hours on the french version (Nord 1300) in the early eighties

evansb has control

Looks like a 4/5 seater, twin engined executive aircraft,USA, possibly early 1950s, tricycle U/C. Stab in the dark Baumann B-250 or 290 Brigadier.
