Superb contrast between aircraft and lights, lovely red tail, angry sky - and what a beautiful aircraft. you could wait a lifetime and never take a better picture.

The engine sound should be awesome being that close to the aircraft. T.B.

5 Star Ratings don't come easily but this one deserves it. Certainly one of the finest photographs I have ever seen, aviation related or otherwise. Truly SPECTACULAR!

The aircraft still operational after more than 40 years is something to behold.

The An-22 is the star of this spotlight. Also, there appears to be several more An-22s in the background, correct me if I'm wrong.

Those 20 foot diameter propellers suggest that the An-22 is also a wide body aircraft (possibly the first to enter service).

Oh my [nonexisting intelligent metaphysic entity]!
On this Image the Antei looks like a prehistoric space craft - now don't You laugh at me! ;-)

What a fantastic photograph. I love the ruggedness of Antonov airplanes, this one is no exception!

A visitor from Canada said it! Indeed, the word is "ruggedness", not just the Antonov, but also other Russian aircraft. In some cases looks like a submarine with wings, really. It reminds the ship #2, from the TV show Thunderbirds, in the 60s. ;-) 5*
