RIP to the crew and condolences to their families.


Out of curiosity, does the An-12 typically have 9 crew? Wiki lists it as 5. What would the extra four be onboard for?

Quoting sturmovik (Reply 4):
Out of curiosity, does the An-12 typically have 9 crew?

I flew the An12 twice with both times 8 crew onboard. Crew included an flight engineer, technical engineer, 2 loadmaster, navigator, 3 pilots (one standing in between the 2 pilot seats)
