Today we invite you to board the Moscow-Mirny bound Antonov An-2. This flight will be special because you won’t be just a regular passenger, you’ll have an opportunity to stay in the cockpit and watch everything going on there!
We are at Chkalovsky military airport that is located in the Moscow Region. It doesn’t look like regular airports with a duty-free and nice interior design. Everything’s simple and concise here.
The plane features four windows, two first-class and two regular ones.
The An-72 is also nicknamed Cheburashka because of the large engine intake ducts, which resemble the oversized ears of the popular Soviet animated creature with the same name.
The plane’s maximum weight is 32 tons.
