A very unusual bird. Take two Yak 55 airframes + One J85 jet engine and mash them together. to get a Yak 110 (N110JY)

Randy Ball in his MIG 17 taking it easy on some very high performance cars. Messed up here having my shutter speed set for a jet aircraft which makes the cars look like they were standing still, which they certainly were not.

Since Bell Helicopter is one of the primary sponsors of the Fort Worth Alliance show they rolled out their latest ride still undergoing flight tests. The Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. V-280 Rotorcraft (Developmental) (N280BH) named Valor with a L-39 chase plane.

As a young boy one of the first Plastic “Airfix” models I made was of a Mig 17! Maybe 58 years ago! 😎

Same here Mike, guess I was around 7 or 8. Once together it was almost indestructible as I recall, perfect for a young boy to play with outside.
