Aircraft parts for assembly arrived at Toronto this morning aboard a Russian Antonov AN-124 transport, one of the largest aircraft in the world. These flights have become fairly regular at YYZ and a few days ago I was tipped about the morning arrival.

Right after touch down it was a race to the infield for taxi shots.

Now that is a wheel chalk. The 124 has an impressive 24 wheels

Not bad for a sunny cold morning.
