The Dam Pub Part 1 (11 photos)

This is the Yakovlev Yak-50 the largest specifically aerobatic designed plane ever produced.

More about it here... http://www.thedampub.ca/air-show/about-yak-50-sn-01

This last sequence is a flat spin, essentially a stall, the plane has little to no forward speed and is dropping while spinning essentially out of control. Now the pilot obviously knows what he is doing and knows how to get it back under control before he hits the ground. You might also not that i doubt the pilot can see where he is going with the smoke generators.

Recovery (stop the spin and dive for speed)
