The beautiful AN-24 – a passenger turboprop aircraft designed for short and medium haul trips.

There is nothing more permanent than temporary. The wooden building of Kodinsky airport, built in 1986 as a temporary version, still operates.

There isn’t enough room for the passengers so they have to wait outdoors.

Preflight preparation. Some passengers clean their windows to have the best view.

  1. Cleaning the windows themselves? Can you imagine a passenger walking to plane’s window in maybe… New York City? The world would STOP with everyone freaking out, screaming “Terr0rz1st!!!1!!”

  2. The plane appears to be on the ground when that empty cockpit picture was taken, cant say that for sure, except that all avionics appear to be turned off.

  3. One of the best things about travelling the lesser flown airlines and routes is the peace and tranquillity you have in the smaller airports, and freedom, mustn’t forget the freedom. Sadly there are none like this where I live now.

  4. … a place still untouched by the globalization… AN-24 commercial plane and flight by sight I saw only in Venezuela. Save those pictures because in 10 – 20 years we will miss it!
