Hello All, I haven't been there since a long time, lack of time . I come back with a thread for aircraft fanatics. It's a story about trucks, made in Germany and sent overseas to Canada. So, they are transported by Antonov An-124 aircrafts. It was the biggest aircraft in serial production before A-380, nearly same sized. needs some... 20 wheels to handle 405 tonnes during take-off. And once, one didn't take off, jet engine to be serviced. Antonov's crew came from Ukraina to replace it on the tarmac. But how can you bring such a 'pick-up truck sized' spare part? When you are Antonov Design Bureau, no problem, it just fits in the glove compartment of the... An-225 Мрія - Dream in Ukrainian which is the biggest aircraft ever built, in term of length and weight (640 tonnes)!!! It exists only one exemplar, flighting on request for extraordinary transportation. A second one is being built and should be finished in 2008. It stayed only few hours on the airport, I had only a small Fuji camera, that's why the quality is not there. But the day after, it was already gone away. :cry: Other pictures, bigger size, more details can be found in my Antonov photo galery.
