On May, 8th, 1979 in the sky over Tushinsky airdrome there was a small plane with bright red wings which with easy rumbling is dashing twisted aerobatic manoeuvres. One another without delays and intervals was followed by loops, flanks, revolutions.
Generally in it there was nothing unusual. Neighbouring inhabitants have got used for a long time to air pirouettes single sports-flight Як-50. But the skilled eye noticed a difference: the big lantern of a cabin extended forward obviously specified that the plane double. At landing approach other differences became visible also: a nasal rack of the chassis and a landing guard.
The plane rolled on parking, and into the earth have stepped the senior trainer of a national team of the USSR on aerobatics and the chief of the Central aeroclub Jury Aleksandrovich Komitsyn - the first pilots who have tested in air new sports-training plane Jak-52. Pilots - people severe, on praises avaricious, but now spoke their contented faces for themselves. How much days later to trainings from Як-52 candidates for a national team of the USSR on aerobatics have started.
