2 Soviet Heavy Aircraft An 22

Soviet Heavy Aircraft An 22

Posted on November 12, 2013 by team

Just recently the Soviet “Antei” became the precious guest in Khabarovsk, Russia. In 2009 there were only two flying units of An-22 in the world. So this plane can really be seen in the air very seldom today. Powered by four turboprop engines each driving a pair of contra-rotating propellers, the design was the first Soviet wide-body aircraft and remains the world’s largest turboprop-powered aircraft to date. Indeed, the pictures can’t convey this but it is huge. The plane can transport 700 passengers!
