Yesterday I took some pictures of 'People in the air' again. Think therefore it's a good opportunity to resume this series with some new images.

This plane got really my attention. It's the Antonov An-2 designed by the Ukrainian Antonov Aeronautical Scientific-Technical Complex (Antonov ASTC). The AN-2 flew for the first time on August 31, 1947. The An-2 remained in production until 1991. This plane, registered as 'DM-SKL' now, was noted first in service on May 10, 1958. The aircraft is owned now by the German 'Classic Wings'.

This is my entry for the 'history' contest.

Hope you'll like it. Thanks in advance for your comment.

You so masterfully captured this picture. The plane is in great detail and the view of the pilot and passengers is extremely clear.

Your skills shine with this People In The Air photo and entry for the contest. Sorry for the delayed comment as I have been away on holiday. I just returned from the U.S. on Lufthansa, though a much newer aircraft. Best of luck in the contest Cornelius!

A great subject that's definitely suitable for the contest Cornelius (o: we don't see many aircraft shots on Caedes these day more's the pity. A very well deserved win!

Faved, downloaded, & I've cropped the framed to my personal preference, hope you don't mind.
