Antonov2 is an old Russian biplane which was made in 1947, almost 60 years ago. There is one Antonov2 at our airport and it is parked at the end of the apron. I thought it was only parked as an exhibition, but today I witnessed it doing some circuits. It was actually flying in the sky, drawing a huge rectangle over the airport. It was so heavy that it was using the full length of the runway, half of which is long enough for our Cessna152. After watching the Antonov2, our Cessna152 looked so tiny and a little bit brand new. I heard that this museum piece is owned by an individual person just for fun. What a large-scale hobby!
