Glass Nose

A common feature of civil and military transport aircraft built in the Soviet Union from the 1950s to the 1970s featured a glass nose for the navigator sit in. Pictured above, some of the flight crew peered out the windows while they awaited further taxi instructions.

This Antonov An-12BK of the Ukraine Air Alliance flew Amazon cargo flights between San Bernardino, CA and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Honolulu was one of the fuel stops, along with Majuro and Guam. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the flights have come to a stop.
