Have you ever tried parachute jumping? Whether your answer yes or no, you will find it interesting to see these guys trembling with fear!
Wonder if any one of them would feel like jumping in the middle of a thunderstorm. Ghastly experience.
These biplanes are also used by north korean special forces to invade south korean territory.
But russian use them for sports!
It would be fantastic if the FAA would ticket the AN-2 for more general use in the US. It would be useful for all sorts of private and commercial endeavors and I bet you could get one perfectly sorted for far less than 100k.
LOL! thumb up!
The Guinness Book of World Records states that the 45-year production run for the An-2 was for a time the longest ever, for any aircraft
I would love to try that Yak. Underwing monoplanes with big rotary engines are very cool to ride/fly especially with the canopy open.
I’d never get tired of saying this… this web page it’s superb!!!!
100 bucks? I’m in!
19 years ago I did parachute training in Turkey (it was free !!) and we also jumped from AN-2 planes which are taylor-cut for this kind of stuff. Turkey being a NATO country I do not know how they went around to go and buy the Soviet planes for the Turkish Aviation Association but they did it !! AN-2 is a very robust and durable plane.
