Yakovlev Yak-50

By RWPhotoGraphix  
Unsure of the name of this aircraft as yet, so the title will be changed later.

Thanks for looking,

Found a little info thanks to been notified which plane this is:

The Yakovlev Yak-50 is a single-seater aerobatic low wing monoplane with retractable landing gear with tail wheel. Development of the Yakovlev Yak-50 started in 1972 based on the single-seat Yak-18PS. The Yakolev 50 was designed by the Yakovlev Design Bureau. The first of two prototypes built was flown first in 1972. After a series of modifications and a considerable amount of testing the Yak-50 was put into production at Arsenyiev in the Russian Federation as a duralumin skinned semi monocoque airframe and deliveries started early 1975. The Yak-50 proved its aerobatic versatility and worth at the 8th World Aerobatic Championships in 1976. Yak-50's ended first, second and third in the men’s championships, took the top five places in the women’s competition and the overall men’s and women’s team prizes. The Jak-50 airplane is equipped with a 360 hp Ivchenko Vedeneyev M-14P nine cylinder, air-cooled radial piston engine. When production ended in 1985 a total of 312 were built, of which the vast majority were for the Russian DOSAAF Clubs. With the introduction of the Yak-55, Moscow instructed all DOSAAF Clubs to scrap the Yak–50s and return the logbooks to Moscow, with the result that there are less than sixty Yak-50s left in the world.
