I`m new on this forum and I tried to find post about Yuri Gagarin`s (first cosmonaut) Matra Djet5 but without results. So, I hope it`ll interesting here for somebody.

In 1965, during his visit of Mécanique Aviation TRAction, he`s eyes seted on Djet and that was noticed by director who presented same car to him later. After Yuri Gagarin`s death in 1968 car was displayed in Star City (space training center) till to the end of USSR. In 90`s car was sold to litvanian private collector, perhaps it`s located in Kaunas city.

P.S.: Excuse me for my english!
