Antonov An-2

Acting as a Junkers Ju-52/3m on floats. The shape is used through a CGI (or green background capture) for all flying scenes. Nearly no hydroplaning is shown.

Some shots are live action and help to realise the heavy redesign : upper wing removed (half the bracing is kept), two (fake) engines added on the wing, the unrealistic floats positioned well back .
