Approaching the runway in heavy rain in the late afternoon, with the runway light well visible through the wet windows of the An-12's glase nose. Seconds later a go-around was initiated to demonstrate the performance of this freighter. Built in 1970, it was registered as RA-13392 in may 1993 and operated by Airstars, and later by Kosmos Aviation. Many thanks to the great Ruby Star crew, Airevents and Merlintour, without their connections and organisation this photo would not have been possible to take.

Very nice pic! I had a quite same experience with the TU-134 to land in the front section of the cockpit in Frankfurt. Nice feeling ;)

A magnificent picture! The foggy window glass makes the runway lights look like a work of art made by an artist on a canvas.

I've always wanted to see an approaching runway through the glass nose of an Antonov. Today you made that possible. Thanks!
