Many times when I was living - and working - in Belgium I watched "Janie" performing aerobatics ... from my garden. The pilot was having FUN with her. Vertical rolls, inverted spins, humpty bumps, avalanches, tail slides, rolling turns, lomcovacs, ... etc ... Then on its way back to Namur, this great looking Russian aircraft would bank over the forest on the hill ... usually at sunset ... rows of gleaming rivets catching the sunlight ... her radial engine producing a most wonderful growl. HAPPY DAYS !!!

The distinctive stance of the Yak 52 on the ground with its spindly but sturdy undercarriage. In the air this distinctive silhouette is also apparent : long canopy, curving fin, big nose and ... "tucked up" undercarriage !

This aircraft is beautiful and "Janie" is nice to look at on the ground but she is really fantastic when she does aerobatics over the friendly airfield of Namur (EBNM) in Belgium. Hope to see more pictures of this beautiful girl ... in the air where she belongs !

I was in Schaffen - Diest (EBDT) for the Annual Old Timer Fly-in Saturday 15 August and Sunday 16 August 2015 ... But unfortunately we didn't see this Yak-52 'janie' G-CBSS ... She is normally a regular visitor being based in Belgium ... Hopefully next year ;-)
