Pic(k) of the week 32: Russian models in the UK

Last Friday, I flew a Robin 400 to Little Gransden (EGMJ), a small strip North of London, close to Cambridge. It is the home of YAK UK, a maintenance center for Russian build YAK aircraft. We picked up a friends dual seat YAK52, and flew it in formation with the Robin across the channel to Belgium. Some Air to Air images of the flight can be found here.

Before we left, I made this image of the YAK's front cockpit with a single place YAK 50 in the background. Somehow the image gives me a second World War feeling...
