    Hi...Looks quite a lot of NA Texan modified. Look at the landing gear

    Not sure about the plane (leaning towards the a modified Texan idea), but that's an Arizona tag on the trailer.

    Definately not a Texan, or any US aircraft. I'd say it is some type of Russian trainer.

    I'm thinking that this is a YAK11. The tail section "spine" may be some kind of variant. Compare these photos.

    Guys, is it just me or is the propeller out of proportion to the engine size, i cant see how there would be enough power generated to pull the thing along

    its definitely not a yak-52. it looks too big and the gear especially looks too chunky.

    id say it is one of these

    the tail is a bit different but im sure there were variants produced
