The Air Mobility Command Museum at Dover Air Force Base has unveiled a new, significant exhibit, said museum spokesman Mark Mougel.
Restoration has been completed on the museum’s Soviet cargo aircraft, the Antonov AN-2. This 1947 vintage aircraft is a single engine biplane, and can be compared to the American C-47 Skytrain in terms of its intended mission, although the C-47 is a more modern design with a greater load capability.
It is worth noting that the C-47 was designed almost 20 years earlier than the AN-2.
The AN-2 is on display outside the museum with many other historically significant cargo aircraft, Mougel said.
Admission and parking at the AMC Museum is free. Entrance to the museum is on Del. Route 9 just off exit 91 from Del. Route 1.
Normal museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Military ID is not required to visit the museum.
