I've just driven round the back of NEMA and seen 3 Antonov An124's are in at the moment (The third one arrived between 8.45am and 11.00am this morning).
The furthest away was an Antonov Design Bureau example, the middle one is a Volga Dnepr and the nearest and most recent arrival is a Polet Air Cargo example.
It is not unusual to get one and on the rare occasion have two (i.e. when the An225 came in last November), but it is very rare to get three. It looks very impressive to have the three lined up next to each other.
Does anybody know why there are three in at the moment?
