Two Yak 50 from The Aerostars in hot pursuit at Airshow Aerodrome de Cambrai, Nierges, France.
Created to replace the Yak-18PS, this winner of the 1976 World championship is one of the hottest Soviet-made «warbirds». Unbeatable at the airshows, this Yak is capable of advanced aerobatics provided all structural modifications have been made. Yak-50 entered aviation history books thanks to the 1977 speed record of 319,57 km/h.
The Aerostars remain the largest civilian team in the UK and the 6 aircraft aerobatics are not matched by any other team in the UK or most probably the World! The display features aerobatics by smaller elements of the team. Complex vertical aerobatics, opposition passes and figures, and gyroscopic manoeuvres flown by 3 and 2 aircraft formations.
