Who Watches AN-22?

Tue May 15, 2007 5:53 pm

Question out of pure curiosity: I've noticed that recently many An-22 pictures appear in "top of last 24h". Who's watching this plane so intensively and why?  Smile

I am one of the persons who search and watch captivated this wonderful plane.

I think is one of the most beatiful planes ever made. Sadly, only for freight flights.

Would be so nice to fly in one of them.

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

We watched them in large quantities on 21Aug1968 above PRG and we were not very happy with them.

I remember that date, and seeing the News broadcasts and newspapers whilst a 12 Y/O living in upstate NY.

I guess sometimes we enthusiasts forget the not so wonderful uses the objects of our fascination are put to.

To better times... Cheers
