Il-14 CRATE

Approximately 3,600 Il-14 Crates were produced for both military and civilian use. The Crate has been widely exported to other countries. The wings are low-mounted and have straight leading edges and forward-tapered trailing edges with blunt tips. Two piston engines are mounted in and extending beyond the wings’ leading edges. The fuselage is long, cigar-shaped, and tapered to the rear section, featuring a rounded, solid nose and stepped cockpit. The tail flats are mid-mounted on the body and back-tapered with rounded tips. The large fin is tapered, with a square tip and a small fairing in the leading edge.
