Yaks from WOW, Masterton

There was a great representation of the New Zealand Yak 52 herd at the Wings Over the Wairarapa airshow, with 9 of our 15 local examples present. 8 of them took part in a Reno style air race and also provided an excellent formation aerobatics airshow routine.
As pseudo warbirds, some of these machines are now being repainted in registered colour schemes, whereby they do not have to display a registration, so it is difficult to know which ones they are.
The light grey and red Yak "718" is ZK-YAC of Yak 52 Ltd, Mt Maunganui (note it is minus one wheel which it temporarily donated to ZK-LIZ which had a wheel malfunction).
The blue and red Yak is ZK-YAQ of Russian Aero Adventures, Pauanui Beach, and
The dark grey and red "67" is ZK-ZAY of Street and Cook Construction Company of New Plymouth.
