Sure it wasn't an An-124?

Indeed! It does come to Houston from time to time.
Here is the thread on its arrival.

Saw it myself when I was down there this weekend. First time I've seen it in person--it's massive.

Very cool. Hopefully it'll be there Thursday morning -- I'll have my brother look for it when it departs for SAN.

There was both the AN-225 AND an AN-124 at IAH parked next to each other yesterday (10/12). The SIX engines on the 225 are hard to miss, even from the air on approach.

No activity this morning, so maybe it's delayed?

Supposedly the An225 has been coming in around 1-2 times a month for the past few months.

We get the AN124s in regularly though--especially with the Hurricane issues in Louisiana.
