10 stars! Yes, it's the cargo. But just imagine - how smooth would be touchdown except a little Hiroshima should be done.

No reading material? Lol

Antonovs lavatory is awesome!))) nice joke Ivan, nice joke))

Great potty seat!

Yikes! That is nasty. All you need is a dose of crummy airline food and you have all the ingredients for the 'Trip from Hell'. Bravery award to Ivan.

A visitor from Norway posted Sat July 31, 2010:
I don't think that airline would be my first choice on a flight...

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu July 8, 2010:
Certainly the maintenance cost is low. But you don't still know The Main Rule for use.
Who of the crew was the first to take a leak that should take away the bucket after landing. I know exactly.

The Russian Technology

I'm sure I saw this once in BA economy.

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 29, 2010:
"Spotless walls and floor..."???? Are we looking at the same picture? I've never seen an a/c lav that rate a Biohazard sign before. Actually, it reminds me of my first college dorm room. Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 26, 2010:
I think id hold it till i got home

Funny photo, great technology!

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu January 28, 2010:
Excellent photo and explanation

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 24, 2009:
Did somebody spot the cigarette sitting just beneath the toilet seat?

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri December 18, 2009:
If Bob Hoover would be on the controls, even loopings would be possible with full bucket !!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 14, 2009:
Humurous and interesting capture. Much more interesting than the same 'ol photos taken by someone at INN with the same mountain in the background

A visitor from Denmark posted Fri December 11, 2009:
Funny Toilet

A visitor from - posted Thu December 3, 2009:
It's not as bad as you all presume. First of all, it,s bolted safe and secure to the floor. And from the spotless walls and floor, either it dos not fly in turbulence, or the washroom just underwent the annual 'W'-check.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 1, 2009:
Thrown of humanity, when you got pressure in the human tailplane..... any thrown is luxurious.

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 1, 2009:
What about odor control? Can't open the windows at FL300. Cat liter might work LOL!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue December 1, 2009:
Great photo, indeed very interesting, as you don't usually find this kind of picture in a airplane reference book ! I just hope that this plane does not do loopings when the bucket is full !

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 1, 2009:
I don't think this photo is tagged correctly, I swear the carrier is Ryan Air ; )

A visitor from Croatia posted Tue December 1, 2009:
I bet there is a hole on a bottom of this can, so the fluids could be relased in atmosphere during the flight.

The red stick is the "depth gauge"!

A visitor from Italy posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Is the red bar used for fuel check ? I think I have an idea what kind of level may help to empty the other hanging tool during stop overs. And that's one piece of technology.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Boys, we should compare it with 707, 727, or others in same class and age. Not with Emirates or Etihad.

By the way, thanks for sharing Ivandalavia. It is a nice photo, but agree with some of you, a little bit disturbing...

A visitor from Canada posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Boeing and Airbus could learn from this technology. Unlike vacuum toilets, this toilet cannot go INOP. Great Russian design, 100% reliable.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
That's one weapon of mass destruction!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
The AN26 is not a passenger airliner, its a cargo turboprop.

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Its ryanair ... they are trying to bucketise their toiletary system and charge for it - hate to be a lady on the lunar cycle --- probably be 50

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Wow, talk about a ----ty situation! Thank you I'll be here all week!

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
A farm hole toilet it´s better.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I think I'd rather just hang out the open cargo door and take my chances with frostbite and gravity.

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon November 30, 2009:
What the hell do you do after you have taken a dump ? and to the guy asking "how do you flush the toilet" below, well their aint no flush if you know what i mean lol

A visitor from Canada posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Well the maintenance cost is low!!!

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
The best part is... There's no toilet paper even :)

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
A great photo on it's own. I thought the "honey buckets" (toilets) on C-130 and C-141 were bad. The AN-26 "bucket" is the new king of throwns :>)

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
OMG! That seems to be the most luxurious lav in Russia ))

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I was lucky enough to get a tour of the AN-26 but was not able to get such a nice, high resolution shot of the facilities.
This photo could be used in the manufacturer's literature to exhibit the way they chose function over glitz and glamor! Their use of greys and aquamarine compliment the faux Italian terrazzo linolleum.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Oh, the humanity!
Keep bucket away from open flame!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Ryanair finds an alternative to charging for toilets

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon November 30, 2009:
That must be fun during turbulence!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
This truly is a "shitty" picture! haha!

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
It looks ugly, but good job, not all achieve a picture like that.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I take it they won't be attempting any barrel rolls in this plane!

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Amazing!! Congratulations IvanDalavia!! This is five stars!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I'd rather pee in a cup than pee into this bucket!

Emirates Economy class...^^

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Hahahaha, very funny. No toilet paper? T.B.

A visitor from Hungary posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Nice flooring and all the equipment as well.. :)
The extra touch of rust is of course an option!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 30, 2009:
In Soviet Russia, toilet flushes you!

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I'll be glad to donate a box of wooden clothespegs to you, for the crew and passengers' noses.

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Ouch! If I fell bad or sick during the flight, I would not use a toilet like this. I would get worse hahaha!!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Outstanding photo ;-)

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon November 30, 2009:
This is engineering! Here you have a way to lose weight on the aircraft structure, less weight -> less fuel consumption -> more efficiency -> less polution, etc... Mother Nature says thankyou :)

Best Regards,

A visitor from Norway posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Imagine a wery hard and bouncy landing...

A visitor from Germany posted Mon November 30, 2009:
So, enjoy your three- or four-hour flight without using the toilet!

A visitor from Spain posted Mon November 30, 2009:
And the hygienic paper???

A visitor from Hungary posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Oh my God, but where's the paper? :)

I hope no-one shows this picture to Michael O'Leary. It might give him ideas......

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I can ´ t believe this is possible.. :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Wow, what happens when you enter a "bumpy" area? Better not be sat on it when it happens! lol

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
LOL !!!!

Is that a toilet ?

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon November 30, 2009:
It might possibly be the most bizarre photo I've ever seen in Airliners.net. High W.C. tech!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Just for a second I thought... not another A380 interior shot... most hilarious shot on A.net in ages. Excellent contribution!!!!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Mon November 30, 2009:
Ooh my goddd!! hahahaah...dude,this is funny..

A visitor from - posted Mon November 30, 2009:
That's disturbing...

A visitor from Germany posted Sun November 29, 2009:
How can you flush the toilet? ;-) Great picture!

A visitor from Philippines posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Oh wow, this is so much better than Emirates' or Etihad's offering! Beautiful! ... you know I'm sarcastic, LOL. Looks like this toilet belongs to a rusty ship.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 29, 2009:
The Russian Technology Can't be better than it.

A visitor from - posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Good job, Ivan!

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Note to self -- do not use the An-26 lav during moderate turbulence.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Oh my!! That is disturbing!

A visitor from China posted Sun November 29, 2009:
How do you get rid of the the smell? Air fresher?

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Sun November 29, 2009:
Top secret of Russian air Force ;)))
