Aircraft listed as a private aircraft with unknown manufacturer in an aviation museum in Krakow, Poland. At first I thought it was a privately owned BD-10, but it has different canopy and inlets. Its called a Bielik "Eagle".

Could it have been a light military trainer?

Designed by Edward Morganski and manufactured by the ZRiPSL-Morgansk. Two versions were submitted: Bielik A for the basic training and Bielik B (sometimes called Feniks/Phoenix) for the demanding customers with the better equipment.

Sorry to open up an old thread but had to put my 2 cents in. This little airplane is fantastic. Really like it. Surprised it is not operational somewhere as a trainer or small attack/fighter. Great looking aircraft in my opinion. Looks like it performs well too.
