Antonov AN-2 Meeting at the ILA-98 Berlin Airshow at Shonefeld airport, Berlin (May 1998) (source: http://www.warbirdalley.com/an2.htm) The An-2 Colt has been used as a paratroop transport, glider tug, navigation trainer, utility transport and light bomber. Despite being a versatile and adaptable machine, the large, fabric-covered An-2 biplane remains firmly rooted in much earlier days of aviation. The An-2 prototype was first flown on August 31, 1947, and the aircraft is still in production, although the Antonov Bureau has not produced any since 1960. The An-2s designer, Oleg Antonov, had been an aircraft designer during the Second World War. He then formed his own bureau with the intention of creating an aircraft capable of almost any task. He succeeded. Originally designed for the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in the former Soviet Union, the aircraft was soon adopted by the Soviet Air Force and built for its client states. It is ideally suited to less developed countries because it requires little maintenance and is easy to fly. The An-2's admittedly-antiquated design gives it extremely short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities. This is partly achieved not only by the high-lift double wings, but by the use of the drooping ailerons which can be lowered 20 degrees to compliment the flaps. The wings are covered in fabric aft of the front spar and the tailplane is also covered with fabric, making field repairs easy. It has a crew of two in a heated crew compartment and a single bay running the length of the aircraft. The An-2 is still in service with over 30 air forces and has been used by Aeroflot and other eastern airlines. With the collapse of the communist regime over a decade ago, a small number of An-2s have begun to appear on the civilian rosters in Europe and the United States, although the type is difficult to register in the United States due to regulatory issues

http://www.henrytenby.com/DVDs/CAF7071dvd.html The Canadian Armed Forces operated a fleet of five Boeing 707 transports (code named CC-137s) from 1970 through 1997. These reliable aircraft provided the Canadian military with a truly global deployment capability, with air-to-air refueling, humanitarian, and troop and cargo transport capabilities. The footage on this DVD was filmed using state-of-the-art TV broadcast betacams. This two-part visual documentary takes the viewer for an up-close visit exploring all aspects of the operation. On this DVD, a period CAF promo film explains the workings of a trans-Atlantic CF-5 refueling flight across the pond. We then fly from Kai Tak to YVR on a Vietnamese refugee flight in 1979. Then we join troops boarding their CC-137 at Quebec City for their flight to Andoya for military exercises, along with a tanker CC-137 escorting CF-5s across the pond. There’s ample footage of all the action at Andoya airfield with lots of noisy & smoky 707 footage. The CC-137s were based at CFB Trenton where we then soak up some winter cold weather operations. Finally, we join a sked-run military passenger flight between Ottawa and CFB Trenton.

http://www.henrytenby.com/DVDs/CAF7072dvd.html The early 1990s was a particularly busy period for the Canadian Armed Forces and its fleet of Boeing 707 transports (code named CC-137s). Under Saddam Hussein, Iraq invaded oil-rich Kuwait on August 1, 1991, and Canada played a key role in the multi-national coalition. This documentary DVD explains the 707’s key role in this conflict with exclusive never-before-seen broadcast footage. From our base at Canada Dry 1 at Doha Airport, 24 combat-ready Canadian CF-18 "Desert Cats" were on strength along with a Canadian Armed Forces Boeing 707 tanker. We’ll join the crew on a 707 tanker flight to refuel several thirsty CF-18s over the Gulf. There’s plenty of action filmed on Doha’s busy apron, and we then join our troops for their 707 departures for Lahr, where a bagpipes welcome meets the men and women who served this country. After the Gulf War, the Canadian Armed Forces 707s supported peace-keeping missions during the Yugoslav conflict, delivered humanitarian aid, and participated in CF-18 refueling exercises in Canada’s high Arctic. And it’s all presented on this DVD. Lastly we visit the NATO AWACS contingent at Geilenkirchen for some AWACs and 707 flights. Overall, a must-have DVD for 707 fans.
