Smoking Permitted

Post by Grass73 » Sun Jan 31, 2016 9:46 pm

From Andy's suggestion in thread on the Russian invasion of Heathrow, here's a few cubs to start off with.

I think was some time in late 2003.Typically clean An-12. Heli-Air, LZ-CBG, An-12BP getting airborne off runway 28 at Dublin.

I think that first one will take some matching, as for needing a clean - Well!

I think we might see a few Antonovs in this topic, here's 2 of An.12 UR-CAK at Stansted last January

All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?

Andy, never understood why they insisted on painting the An-12s white, anyone who can remember the Balkan cubs know that a clean one was nearly as rare as hens teeth.
