PZL M-15 Belphegor - Krakow Aviation Museum

This one is a very interesting aircraft and made by WSK "PZL-Mielec" in Poland.

From Wikipedia's site regarding the PZL M-15 Belphegor... "Serial production started in 1976. Soviet agriculture planned to order as many as 3,000 aircraft, but first experience of the M-15 in actual service was disappointing. The jet aircraft was not economical, and production ceased in 1981 after 175 aircraft were built; it was only used in the USSR. The PZL M-15 is believed to be the world's only jet agricultural aircraft (i.e., the world's only jet cropduster), the world's only jet biplane and the world's slowest jet, at least amongst aircraft that have been put in mass production."


It certainly has a "utilitarian" look about it... and I presumed it was initially designed for an agricultural aerial application purpose!

The location of the chemical product hoppers is certainly different and unique!
