WWII Russian Two-tone Grey Camouflage as "White 100"
The Yak-3 represented the culmination of Alexander Sergeevich Yakovlev's development of lightweight fighter types during the Second World War. As such, it was designed as a short range, agile interceptor to gain control of local airspace during the great Soviet offensive operations of the last two years of the war. The Yak-3 entered service in 1944 and had such an impressive rate of roll, turn and climb that German pilots were instructed not to engage these fighters below 5,000 m (15,404 Ft). Overall, 4,848 Yak-3s were produced.
'White' 100 is one of a number of new build Yak-3s produced by Yakovlev at Strela, Russia in Orenburg in the 1990s. The fighter moved to the UK from Germany in 2011 and was successfully placed on the UK register. Since that time it has been displayed at a number of major UK air shows including Flying Legends. Its high speed and great agility demonstrate how effective Yakovlev’s design was and illustrates the problem the aircraft presented to the Luftwaffe. An exciting air show performer it truly illustrates ‘fast and furious’.
G-CGXG is powered by an Allison V-1710 engine as there is currently no single working Klimov engine available. Both the Klimov and the Allison V-1710 are liquid cooled piston V-12 engines with very similar dimensions and power.
