It's the Chinese version of the AN2 built in China under licence and named Shijiazhuang Y-5. Great to jump out of.

to be absolutely pedantic and running the risk of becoming a real anorak. it's a Shijiazhuang Y-5c on account of it's distinctive wingtips....Mac

This Shijianzhuang built Y5-B is equipped with the optional "Winglet" modification to improve
rate-of-climb. The winglets reduce drag by moving the wing tip vortex outboard.

i would give something good to the Teddyfield charity to see paul using 100 yoyos all at one time! Could be a world record breaking feat! Even better doing the yoyo while skydiving....
