Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mielec M-15 was a jet agricultural aircraft, manufactured by PZL Mielec in Poland for the USSR agricultural aviation. It was the only jet biplane and only jet agricultural plane in the world. For its strange looks and noisy engine it was nicknamed Belphegor after the noisy demon. The aircraft was designed in Poland in response to a Soviet requirement for a new agricultural plane to use on great areas of the Soviet collective farms (kolkhoz and sovkhoz), more modern and efficient than the Antonov An-2SKh and An-2R. Poland had already produced the agricultural Antonow An-2R under licence for export back to the USSR, and agricultural planes became a Polish specialization in the Comecon.show more
