The Antonov An-14 Pchelka (“Little Bee”) was a Soviet utility aircraft which was first flown on 15 March 1958. It is one of the most interesting and beautiful machines among other Soviet light aircrafts. With very stable flight characteristics, the An-14 could be flown by anyone after a few hours of basic training. A small number of An-14 are still in airworthy condition.

    Those historic aircraft deserve better storage conditions. I guess it’s a question of funding, not of interest.

    Mi-4 copter looks like american Sikorsky H-19 from 1950.

    With good reason. Soviet designers were smart enough to adopt a good idea when they saw it, and the layout of the then new H-19 opened up cabin space and put the engine in a more easily serviced position, among other advantages. It was a good design layout and the Soviets appreciated that, that’s all. Other then a rather uncanny passing resemblance they are quite different from the H-19.

    Would like to see photos of the interiors of the larger aircraft…

    Anyway, Igor Ivanovich Sikorsky was born in Russian Empire. So… No Russia -> No Sikosrsky -> No choppers for the US. Ha-ha.

    Love them all but the TU-114 is still my favourite airliner. Would have loved to make the trip from Moscow to Havana in one.
