The symbolic "Yak" in the 70s was shot in the movie "only old men go fighting" - probably the best and most truthful movie telling about pilots in the war. According to the story, it "flew" the film's hero, the commander of the "singing Squadron", whose role is Leonid Bykov. Perhaps that is because this exhibit and is not an exact copy of a particular aircraft: every veteran who ever fought in the "yak", will find in it the features of "their" machines - the Yak-1 Yak-3 and Yak-9.

Yakovlev fighters were the most massive war machines of Soviet aviation during the Great Patriotic War - a total of almost 36,000 built. On the "yak" and French pilots fought regiment "Normandy-Neman" and Polish pilots of the regiment "Warszawa".

The aircraft restored to Kiev Aircraft Repair Plant № 410.
