Hi all,

I've really enjoyed my flight hours in the Yak 1 series, and have been wondering if some of you can provide some good resources on the real life aircraft. It seems that very little footage and information remains of it. Particulairly I'd like to see a Flight Manual or Repair Manual, if that's not possible at least some nice pictures and specifically the instrument panel as it was in real life.


I have found some general sites, but they don't have all that much info:

Ivan Rodionov's Chronology of Soviet Aviation

~~> http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/economics/staff/faculty/harrison/aviaprom/

These very large Word doc files under Chronology are to be downloaded. They are in Russian, so you must do a not perfect translation of the text at the BabelFish translator website. I don't know how much emphasis is placed on the Yak~1, as the Chronology covers many years before and a few years after--to 1946. Try one of the 1941 files and translate some at http://babelfish.altavista.com/ .... I found the 50 word limit is not enforced.

Some things I picked up..."caress" means Lavochkin or has something to do with La. On another Russian aviation language site, I get "the pick up" which is a translation of "acceleration."

Thank you, that's some hefty documentation. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif That'll keep me busy translating it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


However if someone has pictures of the interior of those Yaks and other places, or more documentation, please feel free to contribute. Such a forgotten plane isn't it, you'd think you could find pics of the cockpit easily.
