    $\begingroup$ The photo is probably from the 60s, as the car is a 'ZAZ 965', a Soviet copy of the 'Fiat 600'... $\endgroup$ – xxavier Aug 28 '18 at 11:05

It's a LET L-200 Morava, a Czech plane... http://www.aviastar.org/air/czech/let_l-200.php

  • $\begingroup$ The props in the original picture appear to have two blades, while the props on the picture on that site you linked has three. Is that simply a different configuration? $\endgroup$ – Mast Aug 28 '18 at 18:37

    $\begingroup$ It's morava refinement: The original production model was superseded first by the generally similar L-200A, with more powerful Walter M 337 engines and, subsequently, by the final production version, the L-200D, which was introduced in mid-1962. This differed by in-corporating improved systems, strengthened landing gear, and three-bladed constant-speed propellers. $\endgroup$ – Todd Aug 28 '18 at 18:46
