Bonn, preserved Yak?

Post by Buccaneer S.2B »

Good evening,

While driving yesterday at the Drachenburgstrasse in Bonn (coordinates: 50.668062, 7.180720) we came along an all
silver aircraft placed upon the roof of a shop. It looked like a Yak (18?) to me,
but I'm not sure regarding the type. Anyone for the ID of this aircraft?

Yak-18 indeed, and 'brand new', at least for that location.

Interesting article ! It said the Yak came to Germany in 1968, so maybe an ex NVAl/LSK one? The scrapyard picture shows camouflage.
