Antonov An-2

The Antonov An-2 is a short take-off & multi-purpose aircraft with a wingspan of over 18 m; it is the largest single-engine biplane in service worldwide.

The An-2 was developed in the USSR after World War II and is still used worldwide for civil and military purposes. With its large wing area, the An-2 is designed for low-speed flight and extremely short take-off and landing taxi distances; the landing gear allows take-off and landing on unpaved surfaces.

Numerous examples of the An-2 are still in airworthy condition today, are considered generally safe, perform individual or sightseeing flights, or are used for spraying.

This unique AN-2 can be admired at AIRPOWER22.
