About us

The Dutch Thunder Yaks is a group of Yak-52 aircraft owners who combine their interests and forces to be able to fly (formation) properly and safely in the Netherlands with these special aircraft.

Part of the Dutch Thunder Yaks is the DTY Display Team, an aerobatics formation team that participates in airshows at home and abroad. Not only do we of course enjoy doing this ourselves, but we also like it when others can enjoy these historic aircraft. After all, many people working in aviation have been gripped by this passion as a child because they saw an airplane up close or visited an airshow. We are happy to pass this on to the next generations.


There are a number of Yak-52s registered in the Netherlands. Read more about the aircraft of the Dutch Thunder Yaks here.
