very effective dive brakes. It once held the multi-place world record
for speed around a 500 km. Triangle at 84 kph/ 45 kt/ 52 mph, set in
South Africa in 1964. It succeeded the earlier Ka-2 model, differing
mainly by the introduction of a steel tube, fabric covered fuselage in
place of wood/ fabric. (from saiplanedierctory.com)
