Ah, I saw it in the movie Resident Evil 4.

I owned my -52 for 3+yrs. As a former fighter pilot and the owner of 2 other aerobatic planes, I just assumed anyone who flew these planes knew about FOD in the cockpit. It can be deadly in any plane. So, I disagree about pulling the interior and tail panels??? if it only I who flies it. When you have partners you take chances.The plane is strong, easy to fly [ yes, even for non-aerobatic types ], and very forgiving. Did I mention the sheer flat out FUN!!!

BEWARE: The Yak-52 is a bird with a dangerous FOD problem. Anything the size of penny can jam the elevator bellcrank, making recovery impossible from the backside of a loop, Cuban-8, split S, and other such maneuvers. There is a history of this type of very similar fatal accidents in both Europe and the US with the aircraft impacting in a near verticle dive. I wouldn't fly a Y-52 again without first ensuring I have nothing in my pockets and nothing on my person that could come loose, as well as pulling both seats and ALL tail panels before EACH flight to ensure there is no FOD of any kind anywhere in the cockpit or tail. Behind the rear seat, the cockpit is wide open to the empennage allowing anything that is dropped or inadvertantly comes out of a pocket to naturally flow towards the tail and eventually to the empennage and the elevator bellcrank.

Very fun airplane to fly! Well built and reliable. Learning to taki (the yak dance) took longer than the checkout in the air.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
