Readers will recall my occasional mention of the venerable Antonov An-2 biplane in these pages. Here’s a video clip of one being thrown (slowly) around the sky at a Polish air show. It demonstrates very well how these aircraft, while slow, are very maneuverable, and can turn on a dime and land in a very short distance indeed. I recommend watching it in full-screen mode.
That calls to mind some memorable bush flights in An-2’s over Africa . . .
