WW2 Russian Fighter: Yakovlev YAK-3

Graeme Frew takes his Yak-3 for a spin at the Classics Of The Sky airshow in Tauranga, New Zealand.

The Yakovlev Yak-3 is a World War II Soviet fighter aircraft. Robust and easy to maintain, it was much liked by pilots and ground crew alike. It was one of the smallest and lightest major combat fighters fielded by any combatant during the war, and its high power-to-weight ratio gave it excellent performance.
