Built in 2001, former reg.; N908JW. The Strela-factory in Orenberg, Russia, which had produced Yakovlev fighters during WW2, was persuaded to produce a limited run of NEW fighters. The total production run was just 26, and the last was built in 2005. Because of lack of the original Klimov VK-107 engines, Allison V-1710 was installed instead.
