Flying on Exotic Antonovs - World’s Only An-22, An-38 and An-140

Antonov made over 22,000 airplanes in the world. Apart from the world’s strongest and biggest An-225 Mriya, An-124 Ruslan and An-22 Antei. Antonov have made over 18,000 propeller airplanes. Many of them are still actively flying include some of the less well known models.

I have flown on Antonov An-28, An-38 and An-140. These planes are very rare and in the case of An-38 and An-140, there is just one active flying sample in passenger airline service.

Both An-28 and An-38 are STOL (short takeoff and landing) aircraft with impressive short field performance. I traveled on An-38 from Polyarny, Udachy to Mirny in Siberia with Alrosa Airlines. Then I flew An-28 with Siberia Light Aviation (SILA) from Irkutsk to Zheleznogorsk - Ilimsky. My An-140 flight was from Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine to Minsk in Belarus. Each of these journey was unique with distinct sound of prop engines. Watch the video to see these unique flying samples of Antonovs.

    I've flown these rare planes back in 2017 and 2018 actually. The An-38 and An-140 was the only active airframe in commercial airline service. I knew it is tough in lockdown so I decide to continue to make flying adventure video for the aviation like minded viewers out here to enjoy. Next week, I will be showing a new content about 4 ex-airline staff who lost their job but they didn't give up. They had the courage to take a stand and pursue their passion in their new business.

I hope that one day you can collaborate with a Captain Airbus 320 in Indonesia, namely Mr. Vincent Raditya for a special content about aviation so that we can get to know more about the world of aviation. Mr. Vincent Raditya is also a very famous CNglobalr in Indonesia, his subscriber has reached almost 6 million. I hope this will happen, amien. Best Regards

    I think the An-22 landed at ORD a few years back. I remember hearing a loud prop noise and looking up to see a 4 engine plane with blue blades coming in to land. That day is up there with the day a military helicopter preformed a low flight exercise over a running track near me (flying at less then 500 feet) and seeing Boeing V-22s fly in a line heading to the airport.

    Its a pitty that Antonov cannot bring these fine aircraft back into the marketplace utilizing some of the newer turboprop engines on the market today. More modern assistant for the controls would also be n order and perhaps a glass cockpit.

    Hi Sam. I think i already watched most of your youtube videos and i liked them so much. This is a request if dont mind you've flown i think almost all airline companies my suggestion is have you ever experience during your flight that something went wrong or there are some technical issues on the the crew dealt with it or manage the issue,are they ready or trained well to a different kind of situation, and include your assestment on your video how ready they are. I'm sure it is a very interesting to look for to include on your upcoming review. Thanks and More Power👍👍👍
