Additional Information

The An-24 was designed in the late 1950s as the Soviet counterpart of the Fokker F.27 in both appearance and capabilities. The twin-turboprop An-24 was produced by three Soviet aircraft factories; many remain in operation. The Soviet Air Force needed a modern turboprop tactical transport with paradropping capability. Thus the airliner evolved first into the 'quick-fix' An-24T and then into the An-26, which introduced a unique sliding cargo ramp developed by Antonov and protected by many international patents. This paved the way for the 'hot-and-high' An-32 and the 'big-head' An-30, a specialized aerial photography machine. Antonov's twin-turboprop family has seen civil and military service in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, North, Central and South America, making it a best-seller among Soviet commercial designs. This book lists all known operators on a country-by-country basis and is richly illustrated with photos in the collections of assorted civil and military operators.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Anything you could ever want to know about this family of aircraft is in this book. The authors not only discuss the four main models of this light Antonov transport but also many variants. The book provides many photos (mostly black and white) not just of the different models in different aspects and paint jobs but also good close-up photos of details.

The only thing this book does not have that I would have liked to have seen would have been illustrations of different airline and military liveries, but with the widespread use of this type of plane it would probably be very difficult to come up with all such designs, not to mention doubling the size of the book.
