NEWS Poland Air Show - bad day for Yak-52

A really bad day for this YAK-52 Polish AF crew over the weekend- I see a lot of aileron movement but no pro spin recovery rudder/elevator. Neither pilot survived.

You’ve got to be a special kind of asshole to post this.

From an aerodynamic perspective, is this a situation that is recoverable based on the A/C type and spin profile that it was in?

Normally, yes. Unless something is wrong with the aircraft or the pilot then it's fairly predictable and repeatable- and mostly a question of altitude remaining.
