Image of the Week: An-2 in Leszno, Poland

This week’s Image of the Week (featured on page 3 of Flight International), is taken by AirSpace user Tonyoung (Tony Young). His photo depicts Antonov An-2 SP-ANM in Leszno, Poland. Tony took the photo in August 2009.

Tony writes of the aircraft:

I saw these two Antanovs from the main road and just had to stop!

During a later visit to Leszno this year, one of the [An-2s] was actually flying around the town centre of Leszno very low (200ft?) during some kind of private flying show at the gliding centre. I went back to the airfield, but we couldn’t get in. 

There’s a MIG15 at Poznan airport I want to shoot next time, also!

For those interested in more about the An-2, Tony has found a comprehensive history by a German enthusiast.
