A single-engine Yakovlev YAK-52 recently crashed in San Bernardino County shortly before it took off from Redlands Municipal Airport. The only occupants, a man and a woman, were both killed in the recent aircraft accident.
There are still no reports on what may have caused the accident but Yak-52 was designed to go on rugged terrains with very little maintenance and so many owners prefer to have it than any other aircraft.
It was initially built for training and as an acrobatic aircraft and so the Federal Aviation Authority still considers it as an experimental plane. Nonetheless, it has gained its popularity in the U.S. because of its extensive pneumatic system.
The owner of the aircraft that crashed is a Riverside man who is responsible in maintaining the plane’s good flying condition.
