curiously, her sweater is off in one of the pics...Pilot's side piece, perhaps? Either An-24 'Coke' or An-26 'Curl' (last -24 was built 1979, last -26 1986...probably very high time ships)

It's an Antonov AN-24. Everyone needs to calm down and relax. So what, it's not a big deal.

Judging from the limited view of the panel, the airplane is at least twice as old as the ab initio copilot. Definitely not a MAX, so they're all safe. sarc. font drum roll for the blue hair down votes. Cheers!
