October 21, 2016 marked exactly 50 years since the first Yak-40 flight!

The world's first jet plane of local airlines, the first airliner of Yakovlev Design Bureau, the first Soviet aircraft, which received a Certificate of Airworthiness in the West ... and later it became the first and only business jet in the USSR! Yak-40 in the amount of 1011 pieces actively went off the assembly line of the Saratov Aviation Plant from 1966 to 1981. and some of them are still in successful operated at various air directions, not only of our vast country, but in worldwide.

 

In this post, there willwon't be much numbers and information, you will find only a small selection of photos of the Yak-40, made by me in different airports in the world. Enjoy watching!
