Antonov-70

The Antonov-70 is a new propfan powered medium-size wide-body short take-off and landing transport aircraft. Development of the An-70 program, which began in 1975, effectively stopped with the collapse of the Soviet Union. The first flight was on 16 December 1994, but the prototype was destroyed on 10 February 1995 in a midair collision. However, as of mid-1998 Germany reamined interested in evaluating a Westernized version of the An-70 to meet its airlift needs.
