Flying experience today

Few hours ago was bored so decided to see who was around at the local airport. Unfortunately no camera, but got to go up in a Russian Trainer called a Yak. It was hard for me to get into it ,but worth it in the end. We flew 100 -500 ft msl over local lake then Kyle owner/pilot took her up to 2000'msl and included a barrel role or two. It was enough to take Sunday boredum away, but a bit of nausea was also included! Well the day is still young, now what.

Or if that's a bit boring, try it in one of those bat suits with wings

There are several Yaks. I assume the jet version which I heard could be picked up for the price of a 430.

Maintenance should be ok too as plenty of parts about.

Hey doc, nice one, Yak52 by any chance ? Or was it something more juicy like a Yak 11 ? That would have been a scream.
