 BOEING STEARMAN
Boeing Stearman PT-13 1940

Main trainer of the Army Air Corps, then Army Air Force, also used by the US Navy and Marines in the WW2 period; excellent aerobatic trainer used in the civil world also as an airplane for agricultural work thanks to its robustness and versatility.This specimen, actually used by the AAF since 1940, became an agricultural plane immediately after the war; restored in the United States in the 90s, it was brought to Europe by the previous owner until arriving today in Flyozzano.

YAKOVLEV YAK-11

Yakovlev Yak-11 Moose

Evolution of the Yakovlev WW2 projects this trainer, derived from the Yak-3 and subsequent interceptors, partly maintained their characteristics.This specimen was produced in 1952 and was shelved in Egypt at the end of its operational career. Recovered together with others by some French enthusiasts between the 80s and 90s, it has been restored and for this reason it bears the livery of the “Normandie Niemen”, in memory of the regiment that, with previous hunting versions of the Yak, operated with Free French Air Forces (FAFL). This livery was actually used on a Yak-11 in 1982 for the 40th anniversary of the still existing French squadron.
