Rare visit of an An74 to Marseille

The Antonov An74 cargo aircraft is easily recognisable thanks to the odd position of its engines. Its 2 Ivtchenko-Progress D-36 turbofans are located on the leading edge of the wings, the exhaust blasts directly on the upper part of the wing, giving extra lift. This unique feature gives the An74 Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities, and its remarquable shape.
