I very glad to see outside end inside and flying this oldtimer. And HEAR her song. Smell smoke and listening to the horsepowers.
At my aero club's airshow I only stood by the runway and watching her took off and landing again and again. Kármán Tódor is the last flying Li-2.(confirmed). On satellite pictures above North-Korea can see eleven Li-2 outside. Maybe some flyable.
