Striking attendee on Saki at The Crimea was this really beautiful light blue / blue sprayed An-2. In early 2012, this Antonov became fully operational again after a thorough maintenance. The An-2 is used as a basic trainer, the next step for the student pilot is multi-engine training on the An-26 (see my other pictures of this day). The An-2 is also used for personnel and light transport duties.
I ran into this old An-2 in a yard of a private person. It was delivered to Slov-Air in April 1980 and after serving with two other operators it was wfu and stored by 2000. It was first noted at this unusual location in July 2000, still there by July 2017.
