However, no one was hurt--that's the main thing.

Good to hear all people are OK. Is this the french based Yak3 or one of the 2 german based Yak3's?

cannot look at that pic for more than 5 secs... shivers all over my back!!!!
The crew there is gonna have lots of headaches :-(
2 hopes:
1) I hope it's the Falcon's fault
2) I hope the Falcon has a good insurance :D
3) in case of ground accident does the insurance work as with the cars? :D

Nasty, hoping no one was hurt.

Looking at the shadow of the prop on the ground it seems un-bent so the Yak was presumably static and the Falcon ran into it?

The photo of the damaged Yak-3 shows D-FLAK as recently shown in the May 2005 Pilot.
