Antonov An-148 Questions

Thu Oct 21, 2004 9:46 am

I posted a question about this aircraft on this forum and it was deleted.

So now I have another question about this aircraft and how to do a search so there isn't a "double-post".

Where is the first thread? I thought I had done a search correctly when I typed the words

Antonov An-148 into the search engine on A.net and it said no topics were found. Was I looking in the wrong place? This is the first time I have ever attempted to see if there was a double-post about this aircraft.

My original question was is this a Bae-146 with only two engines on it?

If you can answer my questions before the thread gets pulled, I'd greatly appreciate any help you could give me.

It is not a Bae-146. If anything it's a An-140 with jet engines instead of turbo-props.

Again, no Bae or Dornier connection.

An-148 is a reincarnation of forgotten An-60 project (mid 70-s), based on An-74 technology.

Thanks for the search tips.

I guess what I was "trying" to say is from the photograph I saw that was on the front page of this site about two days ago now, the photo sure just looked a lot like a Bae-146 with only two engines.

Very nice looking plane and photograph. I'll go check out the other thread now since I couldn't find the original thread.

Thanks for your help and tips.

It is definitely not an AN-140 woth jets. The AN-140 itself looks like a combination of an ATR-42 and an ATP (or the poor selling Illyushin lookalike).

The AN-148 is simply an AN-72/74 with pylon mounted engines for reduced maintainence/complexity and increased efficiency.Even the designation hints at its lineage, as 148 is twice that of 74... russian humor? Nothing too exotic about it, but definitely no AN-140 mod.

Now if you add redesigned tail, landing gear, fuselage (cockpit area, wing box, different cross-section...), wing you would get the An-148.

Don't get me wrong, it is indeed another aircraft in a long line including the An-72/74. They just got carried away with their modification work.  Big grin

Personally I don't see the differences in the tail, landing gear or fuselage.

P.S. The "300" on the tail of the AN-148 is its original designation: AN-74TK-300. See: http://www.ainonline.com/Features/regionalbusaircraft/an74tk300.html

Spacepope,

There's no AN-148 there. Can you please edit your post? Thanks.
