The two-seater Yak-11 was developed from 1944 by Soviet designer Alexander Yakovlev as a trainer aircraft for the advanced training of fighter pilots. It made its maiden flight in November 1945. Over 4,500 were produced up until 1956, of which around 700 were license-built.
The low-wing aircraft served in all of the Warsaw Pact countries, and also in Egypt, Yemen, China and Austria. The Armed Forces operated four Yak-11 aircraft between 1956 and 1965, which Austria had been given by the former Russian occupying forces.
AIRPOWER16 will feature a Yak-11 as part of the Static Display, and one is on display at the Militärluftfahrtmuseum (Aircraftmuseum).
