    Unusual visitor to Southend airport

    This Antanov came into Southend on Sunday. Oops my mistake, it was Monday

    Nice one! Saw them in Egypt recently where they tend to sit with their reverse thrusters open, not sure why?

        Alan- the aircraft came in from Brescia operating a freight charter. The first AN74 to visit Southend for a few years.

        ''be lucky''.

            Apparently, from what I've read here and there, that is correct.

              Funny, just looking at that photo again, it looks as though the tailplane is put on back to front!

                It does indeed. But looking at other pictures, it is an optical illusion caused by the protrusion.
