The Antonio 225 AirCraft




The Antonov 225

THIS AIRCRAFT WAS AT THE  NIAGARA FALLS   AIRPORT   RECENTLY (TWICE) TO LOAD COMPRESSORS AND FLY DIRECTLY TO  SAUDI ARABIA   

32 wheels! -- Costs more than a house to rotate the tires! The World's Biggest Airplane, the Russian Antonov 225. Attached pics are of the Russian behemoth when it came into  Medford ,  OR , to pick up two Sikorsky fire fighting helicopters to take overseas -- $1,000,000 to transport them

While they were loading the helicopters, the Russian pilots (two crews), went into town to buy cigarettes by the case and  Levis   jeans. It is amazing something this huge can stay in the air. The Wright brothers would never have dreamed it.
