Yak-152; new basic trainer for Ru.AF.The seats are Zvezda SKS-94M,which maybe an `extraction` system rather than a `seat ejection`,rather like the Stencel system in later Skyraiders..Can`t seem to find much about it,but it can be fitted to Su-29/49 trainers....

OPEN HOUSE....

Well done gentlemen! YAK-152 it is indeed! I find that plane very interesting due to being diesel, unpressurized, having the SKS-94 (so called "light ejection system") and glass cockpit.

Heres a clip of the SKS-94 in tests:

Noyade was the first so over to that corner

Feel a bit of a heel for saying this, but you might possibly have left a bit too much info in the cutaway......

Great challenge though.

No mate. The manufacturer's name is in the cutaway. Never intended - but I can't back-pedal now.

Great challenge Noyade, which provided even more fun thinking of cryptic/silly puns etc. I'll leave it to someone else to nail it down with make, and model etc.

Posted a photo of a truly unique aeroplane cockpit myself some while ago, thinking it would take days to resolve. However, I'd failed to spot the registration resplendent on the panel. A keen-eyed observer and Dr. Google meant it lasted about 12 seconds!

This and "what aerodrome" are the best things on PPRUNE.

Cheers all,

BSD.

Even with the “iron thermal”, I would have thought one of the older Cadets would have recognized this…..

A familiar view with over a thousand launches in one, though the windscreen was a little less period and the lump in the front more chatty! As conversions go, I think these are quite fun.

Is anyone going to formally name this cockpit? I think the two replies above are obviously aware!

As I can't see any cylinder heads, I would be interested to know which particular Motor Tutor this was, and which engine. Obviously not an original JAP V-twin either, which a friend said he borrowed each year for a single flight, and each time took half an hour to confirm what a ridiculous way of getting into the air.

Open house, haven't got anything anonymous enough, sorry.

OK, as there are no takers so far, just to keep things going
