C.Sloat - "Russia's Harvard"
Owner Dan McCue shows off the Yak’s muscular lines for Chuck Sloat’s camera.
The front cockpit of N11MQ has been moved 2ft aft from the standard position to allow for a shorter, more fighter-like canopy. Getting into the back seat must require some contortion.
"Russia’s Harvard" flies 67 per cent faster than the American trainer on only 25 per cent more power. Perhaps the Harvard should be known as “the West’s Yak-11”...
