Слава героям Отечественной войны! / Glory to the heroes of the Patriotic War!
Generic Floatplane (toy)
Not a Soviet design (all single engine hydroplanes were amphibians). Toy of Mil's son dead during WW2 but shape close to the de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver (first flight in 1947 !).
An-2P built in 1972 by PZL Mielec (s/n 141-65) RA-70411.
Another one, 11 yellow.
U.S. Marines Corps, Korea, 1950's.

No use of archive footage as all registrations are missing and some details are wrong (for example the real Mil Mi-8 had wheel aerodynamic fairings; all the single engine airframes are missing (the V-tailed high-performance Antonov A-15 sailplane and Yakovlev Yak-18 and Yakovlev Yak-18T) likewise the Tupolev Tu-134 CCCP-45176).
Reg. CCCP-06174 / SSSR-06174 Mil Mi-6. In front of the Mil Mi-10 and the Antonov An-22 with Ilyushin Il-62 and Mil Mi-8 on the left edge.
Reg. CCCP-04102/SSSR-04102 Mil Mi-10.
1 : Unidentified four engined (not a Breguet 941 -the wing does'nt suit- and despite close shape to an Ilyushin Il-76, it's impossible the type's maiden flight occured only in 1971 ... and too small as the wingspan is nearly the same of number 2);

4 : Antonov An-22 CCCP-46191 show number : 235; prototype later registered CССР-160151 then СССР-64459 / UR-64459. On strength for the VVS as "40" "01" then "10" between 1967 and 1981. Now preserved since 1994;
