Photo Comment

On the day that the An-225 Mriya was making its first flight at Kiev in the Soviet Union, Schiphol Airport was treated with the visits of two Antonov 22s. This photo shows the second of the two, taxiing to the cargo ramp where the other one was already parked. This aircraft was built in 1975, and it is one of only a few An-22s that were still flying in 2016. The sound of its engines and eight contra-rotating props is unbelievable…
