According to their website Cuban carrier AeroCaribbean operates a twice-weekly flight from Santiago de Cuba (SCU) to Santo Domingo/Dom.Rep. (SDQ). Unfortunately the website does not state the type of aircraft used on this route.
Maybe somebody can help me with this: is there a chance to catch an Antonov, Yak or even the IL-18 on this route, or does Aercaribbean use their ATRs on this flight?
Thank you very much for a quick answer!

Check if AeroGaviota also flies this route, they also have ATRs but maybe you get an AN 26. Don't think they have an online booking facility, you might have to call them or check with a Cuban travel agent. Also Cubana might fly there.
In 2007 I flew AeroCaribbean HAV-Cayo Largo on an ATR 72 - I had hoped for an Antonov but was disappointed. However, while swimming in the sea, an IL-18 flew over my head, which was quite spectacular.
