HA-ANI PZL-Mielec An-2P c/n 1G132-55 - Schaffen-Diest aerodrome in Belgium - 15 August 2004 more oldtimers biplanes

Designed originally for agricultural duties under the designation SKh-1, the An-2 utility transport flew for the first time on 31 August 1947. Of robust construction and suitable for operations from short, semi-prepared strips, the Antonov An-2 has been manufactured for both military and civil roles. The An-2 remained in production until 1991. Over 18.000 of the different types were built in the Ukraine (5000), Poland (12000) and China (1000).

PZL-Mielec An-2P HA-ANI was used for sightseeing-flights at the 20th Oldtimer Fly-in at Schaffen-Diest in 2004. The Antonov was built in 1972 as an An2P by PZL-Mielec in Poland. The Soviet Air Force operated the aircraft until it was transferred to the Hungarian Air Force in 1982. The An2P was registered in Hungary as HA-ANI and operated by Thermal Aero before it was sold to Stichting Antonov Nederland in the Netherlands. However the owner is Dutch and the operational base of the An2P is Texel airport in the Netherlands, the aircraft will remain registered HA-ANI in Hungary.
