The Antonov An-2 (Russian nickname: кукуру́зник (kukuruznik) - a kolkhoz maze worker also nicknamed Annushka; NATO code name Colt)

This one is taken above Belgrade during its fight over mosquitoes last weekend.

I really like the light in the sky here, warm at the bottom and cooler at the top. Beautiful.

I took a similar photo, too, but you beat me to posting it! Anyway, couldn't have done it right away, since "Radovan" is still on his Greek trip...drop by.

Always great to see a bi-plane, but it's rare to see a Russian one here, nice shot! Hope the mosquitos are losing the fight.
