Alright, I confess, I REALLY like the An-2….

Antonov An-2

Here is another example of that wonderful beast, the Antonov An-2 (NATO reporting name, ‘Colt’). This one is carrying an Hungarian registration, HA-MKF, and was, like the vast majority of the survivors, built by PZL at Mielec in Poland (over 12,000 were built there). From the first flight on the 31st August 1947, it was clear that the ‘Annushka’ was a winner. China also built this type as the Shijiazhuang Y-5, and it remains in service.
