AN2 - Is this the AN224? I searched on airlinecodes.com and the 224 is coded as AN4.

What about searching the a.net database? There are plenty of pictures and a lot of information!

Why not give some extra info on where you saw it? It could the An-2 biplane. But it really depends on where you saw it and in what regard it was being used.

AN4 is the An-24 -- and it is the An-225, not 224  Big grin

An AN2 is listed as flying as I write from BIO to MLA. Then onwards to CAI. RE-the thread starter I meant AN 124 (not 224).

It would likely be the An-225 if it isn't the An-124 (listed as A124). Email me with what details you got, and perhaps I can get the info for you)

AN2 is definitely the IATA code for the An-2.

When flight managers of the An-124 want to use An-124 they usually write A124 or A4F.

However, on the Malta Airport website link you gave me, they are using AN2 for one of the ADB aircraft -- I have emailed someone I know who might be able to confirm one way or the other, but a reply might not be forthcoming anytime soon -- depends when he get's it -- but seeing as they are not using a specific IATA code, it could be the An-22, An-124 or An-225 -- I will try to get confirmation one way or the other.

Haved you tried ringing MLA airport to see if they can tell you exactly?

For your info, here are the IATA sanctioned official codes:

ANF N ANTONOV AN-12 FREIGHTER TURB N/A-N/A
A4F N ANTONOV AN-124 JET N/A-N/A
A40 N ANTONOV AN-140 TURB N/A-N/A
AN2 N ANTONOV AN-2 TURB 12-N/A
AN4 N ANTONOV AN-24 TURB 40- 50
AN6 N ANTONOV AN-26/30/32 TURB 50-N/A
AN7 N ANTONOV AN-72/74 JET N/A-N/A
A28 N ANTONOV/PZL MIELEC AN-280 TURB N/A-N/A
A26 N ANTONOV AN-26 TURB N/A-N/A
A30 N ANTONOV AN-30 TURB N/A-N/A
A32 N ANTONOV AN-32 TURB N/A-N/A

Thanks. The airport information girls can only give information about normal passenger flights. For speciall flights like this, it is only ATC that normally help. But unfortunately the people I know there are not at work today.

Thanks for the information. I am going to the airport anyway and see what I see.

if you have more information please pass it on.

Thanks

The AN2 was actually the majestic AN-22 that made a tech stop in Malta, the first of its kind ever to land in MLA, on its way from Bilboa to Cairo.

The sound of the engines is nothing like I've heard a turboprop before.

Thanks Russophile.
