HISTORY & BACKGROUND

Built in 1952 at Yakovlev facility with serial number Y-5434, this aircraft was used by the Egyptian Army and is part of a batch of aircraft that was recovered and brought from Egypt by Raymond Capel and Salis Aviation.

In 1982, on the initiative of Alain Capel who discovered the existence of some Yak 11s in Egypt and the possibility of recovering them, Salis Aviation negotiated the acquisition of the lot with the Egyptian authorities.

With the combined resources of Jean Salis, Capel and Jacques Raymond Bourret, the contract was signed in June 1983. It was then arranging the dismantling of the abandoned machines at the El Khanda depot in the Nile Delta, loading into containers, transporting them by truck to port of Alexandria in Egypt, and by ship to Marseille.

Arriving in France with other spare parts, this Yak-11 was purchased and restored by Philippe Joyet, a friend of the Salis family, in Lausanne, where it made its first post-restoration flight in 1994.

It was based in Lons until 2005, then in Germany until June 2011, when it was purchased by the Salis family in La Ferté Alais. It has been sold to Italy and was based at Ravenna Airport since Summer 2015.
