Antonov AN22 Manchester 1 December

Had a quick trip over to Manchester to catch this. Never seen one before. Lovely sunny morning, but typically, the sky started to cloud over just as it arrived.

It is a beast isn't it Peter. Saw it at EMA a few years ago . Shame the sun went in just at the wrong time.

Great prop blur, although sorry to hear the weather wasn't as kind as it could be. I hope you enjoyed the sound it made - even at low power when landing it sounds fabulous.
