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.

AN-2 Users:
Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Azerbaijan, Byelorussia, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Cuba, Czechoslovakia,
Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Laos, Latvia, Mali, Mongolia, Nicaragua, North Korea, Poland, Romania,
Russia, Slovak Republic, Tadjikistan, Ukraine, USSR, Uzbekistan, Vietnam


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.

AN-3 Info

A Russian An-3T single-turboprop aircraft that was left in Antarctica 2 years ago is to be 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 has 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.

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.
