Don't suppose a Yak 50 glides too well with a windmilling prop, well done for walking away... :)

Hit the hedge on the way in... I suspect he was going for the nice big field short of the one he landed in but had a bit too much energy... always better to hit the far hedge if you must...

Absolutly. Lucky he didn't cartwheel into that field. It was always going to stop real short with no undercarriage deployed. Those Yak 50/52 engines are usually bulletproof. I guess nothing in aviation is guaranteed tho......
