It's an Antonov An-2.

[It] is a Soviet mass-produced single-engine biplane utility/agricultural aircraft designed (...) in 1946. Its remarkable durability, high lifting power, and ability to take off and land from poor runways have given it a long service life. The An-2 is still produced and remains in service with military and civilian operators around the world.

    $\begingroup$ It is "huge" for a biplane. Look at the number of windows in the passenger cabin (one window for each of the 12 passengers...) $\endgroup$
