I am busy with an appraisal of the Antonov An-2 "Colt" in African military and civilian service as a research project and am looking for any images and anecdotal information/stories about these aircraft north of the border.
I currently have some 200-odd examples listed which flew or operated at some point in Africa - much more than I previously imagined!

Any assistance in this regard will be much appreciated.
:D

Never knew there were so many An-2s on our continent.
