Yakovlev Yak-50 DDR-WQV

Photographed at the Schleissheim Air & Space Museum on 2 September 2010.
This single-seat, low-wing aircraft was one of the most renowned and outstanding aerobatics planes of the 1970s. At the World Aerobatics Championships in Kiev, Ukraine, a year after the aircraft appeared, the Soviet aerobatic pilots demonstrated not only their own skills, but also the performance of the new plane. First and second prize in the men’s competition and the first five places in the women’s competition went to Soviet pilots flying the new Yak. The aircraft seen here was one of several Yak-50s flown by GDR aerobatic pilots. After six years of flying they were put into storage in 1985 and acquired by the Deutsches Museum in 1993.
Design office Yakovlev, USSR, 1979.
Power plant: 268 kW Ivchenko M-14 P 9-cylinder radial engine.
