This is the Antonov An-2, like the one that landed in South Florida.

On Friday, the authorities reported that a Cuban pilot landed at an airport in South Florida (United States) driving an old Russian-made aircraft.

The Antonov An-2 biplane landed at Dade-Collier Transition and Training Airport around 11:30 a.m. local time.

Dade-Collier Airport is located near the vast wetlands of the Florida Everglades, near the road from Miami to Tampa, known as the Tam Miami Trail.

The Cuban pilot said he flew from Sancti Spíritus, a province in central Cuba more than 400 kilometers east of Havana, officials at Miami International Airport said.
