YAK-12????
That's the one Martin, in this instance, the Yak-12G Some obvious differences from the one in your picture, which I believe is a Yak-12M.


Have one for me

RR has declared Open House

Nice shot Martin.

Was it a missile or guns?

I have to leave tomorrow late morning to see my mother who has just been admitted to hospital (she is 94).

Therefore I am unable to respond to the OH.

I will check in with you guys tomorrow evening.

Have a good thread.

Thank you Martin.

I telephoned the hospital last night and they said she was OK.

Thanks mate.

She has quite severe leg blistering and the old bones are getting weak. She sometimes falls over and is unable to get up again, which is exactly what happened.

I'll know more by late afternoon.

No responses to the OH..........!!

Correct, it's not a PA-28 - and not a Piper product.

No, suspect you are thinking this is something new...it's a 1960's design, and would have been too heavy to qualify for LSA status.
