The Antonov An-8 (NATO reporting name: Camp) is a Russian-designed twin-turboprop-engine high-wing light military transport aircraft.
The first production aircraft was rolled out in December 1958 incorporating de-rated AI-20D engines, (the initial production AI-20D was found to be incapable of delivering the specified power), modified undercarriage control system, fuel vents , pressurization and de-icing system, as well as thicker gauge skin in the propeller plane of rotation and increased rudder range of movement.
Serving in the Soviet Air Force until the 1970s on front-line military duties, many were later transferred to Aeroflot for use as freighters and a few aircraft have been observed flying in Africa, particularly Liberia and Angola,despite Antonov having withdrawn the airworthiness certificate and support for the type in 2004, ending legal use of the aircraft.
