Antonov AN-12 'Cub


tail - tail gunner

Taken at Rukuhia, August 24,1997 Attendees of the Vintage AeroClub Flyin had the opportunity to tour this aircraft. This image shows the tail area above the door, and the fittings for a tail gunner position. This type of aircraft was originally fitted with twin 23mm NR-23 cannon in this position. New Zealand and Australia must be regarded as fairly safe, as the weaponry has not been retained . . .
