Up, close and personal. Full focus on getting close to the Skyvan, and showing of his big 'meat chopper'. Shot taken during the Super Warbird Flight. Nice light, a prop, slow shutter and some smoke make this shot complete. Bigh thanks to the pilots of the Yak and the Skyvan of Invicta to have made this possible.

Famous European Yak-52, 'janie' registered G-CBSS flown by very competent and friendly pilot. The diameter of the Yak 52 propeller is 240cm ! A big 'meat chopper' indeed. Nicely captured. Fantastic shot. 5 stars. Respect, Lieven uit België.

Yakovlev , Yak-52 and Yak-50 are fantastic AIRSHOW flying machines. They are 'big' small airplanes with a lot of charisma and a wonderful growl produced by the 9 cylinders radial engine.

Note the exhaust extensions on this Yakovlevs Yak-52. To prevent smoke to enter the cockpit during solo aerobatic display during Airshow.
