Rare low res photo of a Russia - Navy Yak-38 Forger hovering at the 1992 Farnborough Airshow, with landing gear down. Note the open inlet door for the forward Lift Engine, and the down-turned Engine nozzle at rear. (The aircraft had been on static display at Farnborough and the flying display surprised us.) This was the first time this aircraft type had been seen in the West. Apologies for the quality of this photo.

Lockheed Martin bought the VSTOL design concept from YAK and a varient of this concept is in F35 now.

Certainly no need for an apology, this is history! I knew the 38 was at Farnborough that year but have never seen a picture. I was only 9 at the time and although I only lived half an hour away my father couldn't take me. I was gutted, even at that age I was intrigued by these strange Soviet designs!
