I understand that the Russians have a second AN-225 that was never completed that is now being finished. But I gather that there is no overwhelming demand for large numbers of these magnificent planes.

The operator of that second AN-225 would probably be the Antonov Design Bureau, which has its own cargo division, so I'm sure that if the second Mrya is finished, it will supplement the first one and all the other AN-124s currently flying for Antonov.

That is ridiculous as any number of European countries would take offense to having parts of their territories routinely referred to as their former occupier; not to say this doesn't happen, but at least make some effort! And people complain about American geography knowledge...
