Wings Over Camarillo Airshow 2014
Antonov AN-2 Colt


The Antonov AN-2 Colt (N2AN). The AN-2 is the world's largest single-engine biplane. The first flight was in August of 1947. The Soviet Union produced them until 1962. Production after 1962 was done in Poland under license. In China, license built AN-2s go by the designation Y-5. This one was built in 1984 and is operated by the Inland Empire Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. The STOL and slow speed flight characteristics on this airplane are amazing for it's size. During the show, the AN-2 was flown in a nose high attitude at 38 MPH! It almost looked as if it was floating along like a balloon.
