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

The Avro Lancaster was a British four-engine Second World War bomber aircraft made initially by Avro for the British Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service in 1942, and together with the Handley-Page Halifax it was one of the main heavy bombers of the RAF, the Royal Canadian Air Force and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving with RAF Bomber Command.

On January 16, 1951, 6 B-36Ds were flown from Carswell AFB to the United Kingdom. The purpose of the mission was to evaluate the B-36D under simulated war plan conditions. Also, further evaluate the equivalent airspeed and compression tactics for heavy bombardment aircraft; and evaluate select crew capability for bombing unfamiliar targets. The aircraft, staging through Limestone AFB, Maine, would land at RAF Lakenheath, England following a night radar bombing attack on Helgoland, Germany. From there, the bombers would conduct a simulated bomb run on the Houston Bomb Plot, London, finally landing at Lakenheath. Originally, 11 bombers launched out of Carswell on 14 January to Limestone AFB. On 15 January all were set to depart Limestone. Of those, two aborted shortly after takeoff for engine failures, and three more returned to Carswell that .day. The remaining six (1-9BS, 2-436BS, 7BG; and 1-26BS, 1-42BS, 1-98BS, 11BG) landed at RAF Lakenheath on 16 January following the two scheduled bomb runs. This was the first deployment of wing and SAC B-36 aircraft to England and Europe. For the next four days, the flight flew sorties out of England. The aircraft redeployed to the states on 20 January 1951, arriving at Carswell on 21 January.
