Antonov AN-2R – HA-MKI

24,95

Following the DC-3, VC10 and the Super Constellation, we are now proud to announce another new member of the “Aviationtag Classic Collection” family: The Antonov AN2-R. Based on the designs of the Russian airplane engineer Oleg Antonov, the world’s largest single-engine biplane still in use went into production in 1947 in the Soviet Union. The customer at the time was the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, giving rise to its nickname “kukuruznik” (Russian “Кукурузник”, from “Кукуруза” meaning corn).

Our aircraft sporting the serial number CN 1G153-36 was built in Poland in 1973 on the other hand and registered to Aeroflot under CCCP-05723, where it was in service up until 1994. After this it took to the skies as LY-ANV for the Baltic Air Service in Lithuania, before then ending up in Hungary at an Aero Club and embarking on its final journey in 2018 with the registration HA-MKI to become an Aviationtag.

Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.

The Antonov AN-2 is a multi-purpose aircraft with a wingspan of over 18 m, making it the largest singe-engine bi-plane in the world currently in use. The AN-2 was developed in the USSR and is still in use today in both civil and military aviation. Its large wing area means the AN-2 is built for slow flight and extremely short take-off and landing strips; the landing gear also enables take off and landing on unsurfaced airstrips.

Our HA-MKI was an AN-2R, equipped with a hermetically sealed cockpit and a fertilizer tank with a capacity of almost 2000 l.
