The Yakovlev Yak-17 was an early Soviet jet fighter and his version Yak-17UTI was a tandem-seat, dual-control trainer. Romanian Air Force operated nine Yak-17UTIs as trainers for the Yak-23s from 1951 until 1958. The only one preserved in Romania is plane number 7 (there are only 3 left in the world). The plane was restored in 2018 (unfortunately is not a precise, historical restoration) and is exposed in the courtyard of the Palace of Culture Iasi, Romania (Stefan Procopiu Science & Technical Museum).
