Yak or CJ-6? KMLE

The more you hang out at the airport you may be surprised what you find on the ramp. On this fine April day we had a CJ-6 on the ramp that was beautifully restored. These were used by the Chinese as training aircraft and are commonly mistaken for a YAK 18A.

This fine aircraft is a CJ-6A which would be powered by a 285-hp Zhuzhou Huosai HS-6A radial piston engine. It was built in 1973 by Nanchang China registered as a Experimental.
