I'll accept two models, one a later derivative of the other as they seem all but identical internally, so;
I42, no/no
Asturias, yes

Not Polish - but is it East European? I don't think it's Russian but Sycamore is right I think - it has that blue shade on the dash

That double raised panel is typical Soviet bloc style and it isn't Russian so yes, Sycamore is in the right ball-park.
There really wasn't much Civil aviation going on in that part of the world at the time hence the (almost exclusive) military usage at home but upon retirement a number of this model made it to the US & Canada where its abilities were evidently appreciated.

Teusje has it, UYVA 66
A very capable utility Eastern bloc STOL machine on wheels, skis or floats. The big supercharged Lycoming scoffed fuel but it was an impressive rugged piece of kit. A sort of Soviet Helio Courier.

The high dash line came in for specific comment relating to the pilot's view compared with another aircraft they were featuring

Well M20K to be exact, but close enough.
So it's back to you, Mel.

Written in German.

Between a Beech (99) and a Voodoo (101).

So a German aircraft with '100' in its title!

He he!!
