        AN-12, not an old man but great-grandfather, a reliable aircraft. In the 70-80s, he flew all over the North, airfields of DA. Most likely, it doesn’t care.

      They shoot down either on take-off or on landing. It’s sad to lie where you haven’t been called.

    I’m sorry that this happened. The technique is too old.

      Yes, a little old, of course .... It was produced in the USSR from 1957 to 1973.
      In the USSR, the An-12 was mass-produced at three aircraft factories in:
      Irkutsk, 1957 — 1962 years, 155 copies;
      Voronezh, 1960 — 1965 years, 258 copies;
      Tashkent, 1962-1972, 830 copies

    May the earth be lost to the dead. What a tragic day today. Our military in Ossetia died, the Egyptian plane crashed, the same with the Americans.

    And what did he fly there? Did you take the drug? Or Taliban ammunition? Or from there dope, and back ammunition?

      People died, families were left without breadwinners, and some are bullied here.

      Maybe so? or maybe not? Here's a dilemma! who can know for sure? you first heard Silk Way Airlines and the words Afghanistan. Let us leave aside that the plane was flying INSIDE Afghanistan and you read the news through another place or understood in another place. Are the Taliban so twisted that they rent planes to transport drugs and ammunition even inside the country? ))) In short, blurt out something and think it’s all the same different things, to read the news, first you have to not fly there, he fly there. A typical user is a victim of propaganda of stereotypes if the plane is az-driven, Ukrainians control Uzbek and az-ts in Afghanistan means weapons are taken by love, drugs and by love against the Russian world.

      they carry humanitarian aid ... the An-12s are mainly working there (Afghanistan, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, etc.) ... the service life has already been extended several times ... the last one was 2012

    The car, although old, but reliable! Much depends on maintenance! And leased airsides often overload or cargo moves on take-off, poor quality fuel can be on field airfields. Land in fluff!

    Sorry for the "international crew", but the disaster is natural. Such an aircraft has long been impossible to fly.

      You can’t fly on such an airplane for a long time.

      "Old" (in terms of service life) does not mean that it cannot be flown. American B-52s and our TU-95s are almost ten years older by the years of development. And nothing ... They are still in service. Much of airworthiness depends on the quality of flight operations and maintenance.

    It hurts to read such messages. Oh, Antoshka, you are so reliable. Condolences to relatives, friends. They took off and did not land. Rest their souls.

    SilkWay initiated the remotorization of the Il-76 for PS-90 engines at TAPOiCH. Thanks to the order for 4 boards, the plant lasted for some time!
