As the biggest aviation get-together in the country, EAA’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, always attracts some interesting airshow performers. This year’s list is starting to take shape and it includes such adventurous entries as a Yak-110. For those of you who are scratching your heads, you’re not alone. We weren’t entirely sure what it was either.
As it turns out, a Yak-110 is what happens when you hook two Yak-55s together and throw in a jet engine for a bit of extra kick. Dell Coller, the primary builder of the 110, has plenty of experience. As a pilot himself and crew chief for John Klatt Airshows, he’s built, worked on and flown quite a few other unique planes. The Yak-110 will be piloted by aerobatic pilot Jeff Boerboon, who has a few aerobatic championship titles to his name and also performs airshow routines in a jet-powered Waco (another one-of-a-kind aircraft that Coller helped to build and maintain).
