Don’t you just love biplanes? Big and bold, the ‘Baltic Bear’ An-2


 

 Don’t you just LOVE biplanes? They don’t come much bigger and more bearish than Air Unique’s Lithuanian registered Antonov An-2T, LY-BIG (construction number 1G236-23) ‘The Baltic Bear’. This gorgeous piece of aviation retro-design was first flown as a prototype AFTER WW2, despite the biplane configuration. The ‘Anushka’ has been used for para-dropping, crop-spraying, meteorological research, ‘feeder liner’, mineral prospecting and almost everything else. This particular example has a most luxurious executive interior. As you can see, sometimes the Commentary Box is the best place for photography, too!
