Yak-50, A.S.Yakovlev

This guy in Yak-50 photographed by Herve Champain (herve@lpd700.lpd.supelec.fr:1999) calls himself "Mad Russian"... Sounds nasty, but David Sutton provided history of this nickname!; See more planes and pilots (not all mad!) on impressive Herve's Page;

Yak-50 is a single seat aerobatic/trainer taildragger with retractable main gear.
