The Yakovlev YAK-1 was a Russian fighter used during World War II. In 1942 the YAK were trim little planes, and the best Soviet-made vehicle in the air force.

While trapped in the past, Pavel Chekov was assigned to lead a squadron of YAK-1 fighters on a mission to escort a B-24 Liberator. The Liberator was piloted by John Kirk and carrying American diplomat Averell Harriman to London via Sweden. Chekov's YAK-1 was shot down over the Baltic Sea. (TOS novel: Home Is the Hunter)
