An-24V 5605


Built on October 30th, 1969, An-24V 5605 of 3SMDLP looks beautiful in the sun, parked next to a Czech An-26. Later, this An-24 became part of the new Slovak air force. 5605 became sad worldnews on January 19th, 2006, when it crashed in Hungary. Of the 43 persons on board (most of them returning Slovak peacekeepers from Kosovo), only one person survived this terrible disaster. The investigation later indicated that the pilot descended too early in the dark towards the lights of Košice airport, 20 kilometers away from the crash site. It's the deadliest plane crash in Slovak history.
