What happens when you put two Yak-55s together and add a jet engine? You get the Yak-110: a tri-motor airplane with six wheels and two cockpits.

Although pilot Jeff Boerboon’s idea was conceived sometime between 2010 and 2011, the Yak-110 project officially began on October 24, 2016. Just over a year later, in mid-November 2017, the plane took its first flight.

“That airplane is 100% airplane,” Boerboon said. “It has a great warbird feel to it but, from the ground, it has six wheels.”

As of now, the team is equipping the Yak-110 with its jet engine and planning to be fully operational prior to the start of the 2018 season. Although the team is still setting its 2018 schedule, the Yak-110 is set to perform at both EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in July and the California Capital Airshow in September.
