Remarks: On this day, me and the whole crew was lucky. One minute before taking off in the taxiing axis collapsed, and the left front wheel on the landing gear came off. One can only imagine what would happen if a wheel fell off during take-off or landing.
Remarks: Extremely dangerous flight fire fighting in the mountains. This training is to ensure that the crews of aircraft An-32P were willing to perform such tasks. I am on this flight was an instructor at another navigator, so I was able to make such pictures. When the fly itself - to photograph just do not have the time - the whole crew is busy piloting and navigation by 100%.
Remarks: The plane has no yellow-blue stripes on the board. But in the glazing of the navigator already have visiting card of the aircraft - the girl with the camera picture, written by Vladimir Kalinin.
Remarks: The aircraft carried out maintenance work to control the flight. Planting was carried out after a heavy rain storm. The plane taxied to the parking lot through a deep puddle. In the deepest place of the wheels were half submerged in water.
Remarks: The second aircraft An-32P for the Ukrainian Emergencies Ministry is preparing for flight testing. The aircraft is still some elements of the final color is not installed water flushed aggregates.
