Hi, passing through Phnom Penh earlier this year and spotted a couple of An24s with winglets. Are or were these in service? just curious... Link to the photo below. http://airfieldsandairports.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/phnom-penh.html Thanks.

There are no An-24s with winglets. You've seen a bunch of Chinese made Y-7K, a further development of the An-24. If I am not mistaken the winglet'ed versions are only used by the Chinese military. I don't believe the civilian Y-7 has winglets.

Thanks for the info. Certainly most likely to be Y7's but I could only get those hazy photos. ATB
