First UK airshow appearance for the UK’s latest warbird – the Yak-3 F-AZIM!
I am delighted to announce that the Little Gransden Air & Car Show has secured a first for all of the lucky visitors to our 2021 extravaganza!
The show will feature the first airshow appearance and display of Bob Davy’s latest Yak-3, F-AZIM, in its spectacular soviet colours as White ’27’. Powered by a Pratt & Witney Twin Wasp engine of 1,200hp, it will provide a graceful display of its capabilities.
The Yak-3 went into production in 1943, with a smaller, better-performing wing, which provided a superior performance than the slightly-earlier Yak-9. Most Yak-3 aircraft was originally powered by a VK-105PF2 engine which provided the Yak-3 with a superior performance overall Axis piston-powered fighter aircraft!
