Awaiting delivery recently were these four Yak-40s all with the new thrust reverser on the centre engine. Nearest the camera are two for Bakhtar Afghan Airlines.
Delivered earlier this year to the Fuerza Aerea Colombiana was this Fokker F.28 Mk 1000 which now operates from Bogota as a presidential transport.
Not previously illustrated in the West, the Yak-28U, codenamed "Maestro”, is a trainer version of the tactical attack version of the Yak-28 (Brewer) and not a derivative of the Yak-28P (Firebar) as has been stated by some sources. It has the original short fuselage and two Tumansky RD-11 turbojets
