As is typical for Manchester the sun decided to disappear just as the AN22 was lining up for it's approach to land. Still it was nice to get a few photo's of this rare plane.Antanov AN22 Antonov AN22Antonov AN22

Light or not, that's a great capture! You are dead right about its rarity, in 55 years of this hobby I've never even seen one!

Still unbelievably conflicted as to whether I should have gone or not!
Nice shots, shame about the lack of sun! Fingers crossed for the return flight, eh?

Great photos , couldn't make it due work ....... thanks for posting
Are these flights connected to a knackered Thomas Crook aircraft in Cuba perhaps ? engine outbound and engine inbound on return ? just a thought
could be totally wrong

Thanks for the comments guys. I thought I'd better post up for people to see and it gives a record for the site.
cg_341 I ummd and ahhd as to go or not, knowing it would depart over my house, but I'm glad I did as I didn't get a heads up for departure.
Ikarus yeah it's taking the engine to Cuba.

Unfortunately I didn't get to see this rare "Beast", but I certainly heard it climbing out over Widnes this afternoon, awesome sound!

Immense again today departing MCR for Leipzig!
A first for me having only seen a stuffed and mounted one before, and the lighting was terrific too............ dark skies behind, and that livery with the sun on it.
