So far its an eastern European biplane thats not Polish that first flew in the late 1980's.
Was it designed for agricultural use?

Yes. A different, much more successful aircraft type is being produced under licence by the same factory.

BAe (HS) 748 of Emerald Airways, perhaps G-ATMJ. Also, photo may have been reversed.

I looked at the .jpg but decided not to cheat/ be made a fool by a rogue .jpg heading!
Then I wondered about Aviation Trader but decided no, then I thought Douglas DC-6 or similar???

Definitely not a DC6 or Budgie, despite the green cheat lines (Atlantique & Emerald). I can see Simon's smidgin of Boeing in there, though, with the windows and cockpit upper deck. Intrigued...

Has everyone given up on guessing the Romanian crop duster type I posted? I hope not.

Oops, sorry - temporarily diverted! There's something reminiscent of a Yak there, Cringe. I'm probably way off course.

I have searched all my reference sources to no avail for the Romanian bi-plane.

Mine too (limited though they are...) Only thing I can begin to think of is perhaps they stuck a biplane configuration on the IAR 826 or 827? But I'm probably spraying the wrong field...

Not a Yak or an IAR 826/827 derivative.

OK, let's move on: It was the IAR AG-6, manufactured at Aerostar Bacau. A turboprop variant was also planned. The better known type mentioned is the Yak-52.

I might take this opportunity to jump in with one.
Now if your subscribed to this thread, you might have had a good clue to what this craft is.




cringe- That one was a doozy. I probably have over 3000 aircraft in books here and not one mention of the AG-6. So much for "The encyclopedia of world aircraft" .... Also I think I have used up my monthly download limit searching...
