Post WW2: Nanchang CJ-6a

The Nanchang was designed in China in 1959 to be operated as a primary/advanced military training aircraft. Production commenced in 1960 and continued until the 1990s, such was the success of the design.

 

Both the Yak 52 and the Nanchang have a common ancestor in the earlier Yak 18 trainer from the late 1940's.

FRUOver 2500 Nanchangs were built by the Chinese as military trainers between 1950 and 1994. Powered by a slightly smaller 285 horse power engine, the fully retractable undercarriage does give it a slightly better cruising speed than the Yaks.

Virtually unheard of in the west prior to 1990, the type has since been acquired in some numbers by warbird pilots in the USA, Australia and New Zealand and has proved very popular.
