Oh Antonov An-74!
It saw for the first time.
I appreciate publication.

The unusual positioning of the engines is to boost lift for STOL use by blowing the engine exhaust gases over the wing's upper surface. It's known as the Coandă effect. Boeing copied this concept for a similar aircraft (YC-14) but it was not successful and only 2 prototypes were built.

Wow! Never even heard of AN-74.
That looks a lot sleeker in the air than on the ground. A real workhorse though...
Never seen this plane before, great shot!

. . . what a difference a year can make. A totally different landscape in Kiev today. Sad.

Which is it a 74 or 72?
George Maidens
Vaughn Blue Jr It would probably be an AN74, for which the ICAO type code is AN72 !
