        I cant figure that out either TA! Less aerobatic, more power, heavy elevator, slower roll, with greater momentum. Gear looks like a ground handling nightmare.

            Well that's something I never expected to see, mainly because being relatively sane means that the thought had never crossed my mind!! )

            Amazing what can be done with a bit of lateral thinking and initiative...oh, and money. Practical use?? Probably none, although it might make a good handling trainer for prospective F82 pilots??

              This is the other airshow act from Jeff Boerboon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA-w8HjeY2Q (which also neatly pulls this thread back into the 'Historic' world.... )

                I think we can say comfortably that the Yak 55 is historic! Its hardly a cutting edge aerobat....

                      You could even argue that this is a similar project

                        Why did they do that ? Because after a few beers in the back of a hangar, the guy that built the Sasquatch Jet Waco and his friends said... "Why not ? Let's try it !"

                            Its taking two nice aircraft and turning it into something that has no value

                              If the owner can sell it as an airshow act, then it has value for him. Had they done this to two historically significant aircraft, I'm sure it would have caused quite a stir. As for two Yak-55s, I don't think it matters much what he does with them. I for one will be looking out for the videos showing the finished item.

                                It is indeed intended for the airshow business. Wait until it received the jet engine under the central wing.
