Yakolev Yak-23/S-101 Flora series






Last updated on: September 13, 2017

As with all my Red Team jet pages, this will just be for the exported examples, listed by nation.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
