    Is this the same Allison-powered Yak everyone is referring to?

    hope this link works:

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Culpe...32729933429991

    If not, search "Culpeper Regional Airport" and look at today's video of the Yak doing its engine run with the Allison.

    The to be Allison powered Yak that everyone is referring to is at Redding California. The engine program has been discontinued due to lack of funds. Look at the first page of this thread.

    Thanks, I am aware that the thread is referring to a Yak in Redding, California; however, I wasn't sure that the video in the Culpeper Regional Airport's Facebook page was taken there, or if maybe one of their airport bums actually travelled to another part of the country and videoed/posted it.

    I'll take that as a no, then.

    stopped by a hanger in redding that had the door ajar. looked in and there was nobody was around, I yelled out several times still nobody was around,there were two cars out front I decided to take a couple pictures. I never went into place I just snapped three shots and decided to haul ass..
    could this possibly be the reading the yak everybody's talking about??
    I don't know can someone help me out??
    I did notice it had a v12 block up front don't know if it's Allison and Merlin ???

    I can confirm that this is the Yak in question. Also, the vertical fin is just a stock one with a 1' extension on top... Similar to Czech Mate but rounded to match the wing tips.

    Thanks for the info. I see it now if I zoom in on the picture. Sure wish CM would have went with a rounded fin to better compliment the airplane.
