Video: AN-72 Boogie Cochstedt 2008 - Mikrokopter Perspective

Some impressions from the AN-72 Boogie, including onboard footage from a Mikrokopter. Featuring Bird Men briefings on the ground, in-plane view of exit, skydivers landing, visitors, planes (Antonov AN-28 and PINK Skyvan), and some in-plane views of the exit. A great day for all of us!

P.S. the AN-72 got stuck in Moldavia...
