Thanks guys. I looked at the DB to see if anything was uploaded in the last few days. When I arrived on 23-05, a major thunderstorm had just passed through, and I could see that the AN-124 was taxiing amongst the backed-up traffic. I thought that it was leaving (and stuck around for a while to see if it did), but it was still there this afternoon. Just seeing it made may day--the vertical stabilizer is enormous....

Quoting USAFHummer (Reply 4): Sadly, the An-124's days visiting DEN are probably numbered as Lockheed Martin is shutting down its facility here, and production of the rockets is being moved to a plant in Decatur, Alabama...
Greg, was that the only purpose of the AN-124's in DEN? Any other "clients" here besides Lockheed-Martin?

Nope, Lockheed was the only reason the AN-124 visited DEN.
We also had a Cargolux freighter come in once carrying luxury cars, but I don't know if that was a one time deal or if it'll happen again. Hopefully it comes in again, cause I botched my shots the last time it came in
