    Nasty,
    However, no one was hurt--that's the main thing.

        Good to hear all people are OK. Is this the french based Yak3 or one of the 2 german based Yak3's?

          cannot look at that pic for more than 5 secs... shivers all over my back!!!!
          The crew there is gonna have lots of headaches :-(
          2 hopes:
          1) I hope it's the Falcon's fault
          2) I hope the Falcon has a good insurance
          3) in case of ground accident does the insurance work as with the cars?

            Nasty, hoping no one was hurt.

            Looking at the shadow of the prop on the ground it seems un-bent so the Yak was presumably static and the Falcon ran into it?

              The photo of the damaged Yak-3 shows D-FLAK as recently shown in the May 2005 Pilot.
