Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

Yak-23s seen flying in Ep. 15 of Brána do historie.

The Yak-23 was developed from the Yakovlev Yak-17 by the mount of a Klimov RD-500 turbojet (a reverse ingeneering copy of the Rolls-Royce Derwent V) increasing thrust by more 50%. Speed and range were greatly improved but the straight wing tempered the general performance which were under those of its contemporary counterpart, the swept-winged Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 (respective maiden flight are 30 December 1947 for the MiG versus 8 July 1947). Despite this, all the Air Forces of the Warsaw Pact members (minus the German Democratic Republic) received a small number of the last Yakovlev built with this layout ("pod-and-boom").

A little more of 300 Yakovlev Yak-23 were built.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Yak-23 (or S-101 has the Czech named it).
