The Chinese version of the AN-2, the Y-5, was licensed in 1957 and was exported to various countries
including North Korea and Albania. Chinese production as the Y-5 commenced with Nanchang in 1957,
before being transferred to Shijiazhuang Aircraft. The main Chinese version is the standard Y-5N,
while the latest development is the Y-5C paratroop carrier for the PLA-AF with distinctive wingtip vanes.

Note: 30 or more East German AN-2s in service at the time of German re-unification were permitted to retain their
standard airworthiness certificates for commercial operation.

Many AN-2 were used by the Soviet  DOSAAF
(Dobrovol'noe Obshchestvo Sodeistviia Armii, Aviatsii i Flotu)

North Korea has more than 300 AN-2 aircraft in their military inventory and could use them to insert special ops forces into South Korea. Reportedly, North Korea has made a concerted effort to keep its arsenal of easy-to-fly AN-2s well maintained.

Antonov AN-3 turbo at South Pole  

A Russian An-3T single-turboprop aircraft that was left in Antarctica in 2002 and was later flown back home to Moscow to fulfill requirements of the Madrid Protocol under which Russia is obliged to remove it from the Pole.

The expedition to collect it is led by the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma and well-known polar explorer, Arthur Chilingarov. The aircraft had been at the Antarctic Amundsen-Scott base since January 2002 due to an engine failure.

It seems that a test crew has already flown the An-3T from the South pole to the US research station at Mc-Merdo. The 735 NM (1,360 km) flight lasted over 7 hours and achieved a height of over 13,000 ft, exceeding the published service ceiling for the aircraft.

Russian aircraft removed from South PoleThe AN-3 aircraft is a modified AN-2, which has been in operation for 50 years. It is a huge bi-plane with a 1,375 hp engine and a ski/wheel undercarriage which enable it to operate out of 500 m rough strips. Over 15,500 AN-2 aircraft have been produced and it is still in production in China.

Ron Sheardown's AN-2 (N72KS) sinks after landing on thin ice..  May 2000

The Antonov an-2, accompanied by a Cessna 185 was on the return trip from Spitzbergen, Norway to Barrow, Alaska when a landing was attempted on the North Pole. The Cessna landed first to check the thickness of the ice. When the Antonov touched down the ice began to crack. While attempting to take off again, the ice gave way under the main gear, causing the nose to sink into the freezing water. The aircraft remained on the ice, supported by the lower wing of the biplane. All aboard managed to get out safely through the aft left hand door.

All they could do was revel in the wonder of it all. The jagged blue ice, endless blankets of snow and a big revolving sun that made it all sparkle amid utter silence.

A group of five wide-eyed northern adventurers found themselves stranded at the North Pole on Monday after their plane broke through ice and began to sink during what was supposed to be a brief sightseeing stop. It took 13 hours for help to arrive, but the men considered their plight a grand opportunity.

"It's a beautiful panorama in all directions," said Dick Rutan, a famed former fighter pilot who lives in California's Mojave Desert. "There's nothing around for a long time. I call it magnificent desolation."

He wrote "SOS" in huge letters on the snow-covered dark ice, adding a happy face to the centre of the O, and couldn't resist adding his own name, like a kid at a big snowy beach.

Some of the party napped, snug in their warm survival suits in a snow house they built for shelter. Others traded tales and wondered when they would be rescued. They ate sandwiches, chips and candy, and washed it all down with hot coffee and tea.

The first two minutes, when they evacuated the plane, were the most frantic. Veteran northern pilot Ron Sheardown, who is based in Anchorage, had decided to land -- ironically to check the ice thickness -- and was taxiing about one kilometre from the North Pole when the front wheel of his Antonov AN2 plane, a 14-seater single-engine bush craft full of men, gear and fuel, broke the spongy ice, which was, at best, 45 centimetres thick.

The group unloaded their 280 kilograms of equipment from the slowly sinking plane. "Nobody even got wet feet" Mr. Sheardown said proudly yesterday in an interview from the Eureka weather station on Ellesmere Island where the group was resting.

They broke camp in 15-below weather and set up their locator beacons.

Then they waited.

The five, including Jim Bowden, who owns a video company in Anchorage, Walt Parker, who works for the Arctic Research Council in Anchorage and Jan Haughland, who is from Oslo, and is involved in northern adventuring, were travelling with another plane. The aircraft, a Cessna 185, held pilot Lee Wareham and John Pletcher, both of Anchorage, who radioed for help and continued back to Alaska. The mishap occurred during the return leg of a 20-hour flight between Alaska and Spitsbergen, a group of northern Norwegian islands, which began on Thursday.

The U.S. Coast Guard contacted Canadian and Norwegian government agencies and together the U.S. and Canadian officials decided to charter a First Air Twin Otter based in Resolute, Nunavut, which made the four-hour trip north to pick up the group.


Dick Rutan, 4 Other Fliers Stuck at North Pole as Plane Sinks; None Hurt

May 16, 2000|From Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — Five people aboard a Russian-designed biplane were stranded Monday when the plane landed at the North Pole and sank through the ice.

The five were identified as Ron Sheardown, John Pletcher and Jim Bowden, of Anchorage; Dick Rutan from Mojave, Calif., and Jan Haugsad of Norway. Rutan made history in December 1986 when he completed a nine-day, around-the-world, nonstop flight without refueling.

The Coast Guard Rescue Coordination Center in Juneau was alerted at 10:46 a.m. that the group needed help, said Lt. Kevin Dunn, who was helping arrange a rescue with Canadian officials.

Everyone aboard the plane was able to get off safely and had enough gear to camp out on the ice for about a week, he said.

Weight and Balance

Prop Turbulence!

We're all taught to fear wake turbulence from big heavy airliners, but imagine the surprise of the English pilot taking off in a Robin just after an Antonov An-2, the huge, slow Russian biplane. However, as the Robin was climbing, it suddenly rolled to the left through about 80 degrees for no obvious reasons. The pilot fought to get the plane back under control, but the nose dropped steeply and the airplane spiralled in and crashed. Damage was extensive but both pilots survived with whiplash injuries and minor cuts. Although the An-2 is technically a 'light' aircraft, at full gross it is seven times the weight of the Robin, and has about twice the wing span........ AND 1000 HP driving a very big Prop!!

Be considerate...... warn other lighter aircraft not to land immediately behind a departing AN-2.
