Nice trip!

That plane is hardly ancient or derelict! That is an Antonov AN-2, a great plane, and they're everywhere in the former Soviet Union and China. The FAA won't certify them, so you won't see many in the US. The design may be old, but it is a lot like Ural or Enfield motorcycles, relatively new construction.
