It is reported that the Yak Warbird is for sale and / or has been sold to a new owner in the South-East corner of the state.
The Russia built warbird is powered by a single Vedeneyev (Ivechenko) M-14P Piston engine. It was also interesting to note that VH-IBT has its past registration marking (CCCP-44293) and home-country (Kazakhstan) under its current registration marking. There is also an import badge for Red-Star Aviation.
Sad to see it leaving the region...
