Quoting DALCE (Reply 1): She is standing at the buffer across the highway ( A4 ).
Could not get a proper picture.
Yes, I drove by it this morning, saw the remarkable open front door from a distance. First thought it was a An-124. A pleasant suprize! had to keep my eye on the highway unfortunately.. Luckely AMS has lots of spotters and good viewing places (as can be seen at the bottom of this picture) .

Quoting KL911 (Reply 4): During pushback the plane got damaged. It looks like a hydrolic leak from one of the gears. An AN-12 is due at 1800 hours July 8 to bring spare parts, so It's still at AMS for at least 24 hours.
Hope for some nice weather!
Wow, who wold ever ave thought an AN-225 at AMS for more then 48 hours!!!
Now that's the Julliet platform is still pretty filled up will there be any problems at AMS or are they just going to park everything at the hangar section?
Nice weather in Holland????? Don't count on it when something special happens
Zanair flight, please hold on finals as we have to clear rhino's off the runway. Next flight: AMS-FRA-AMS

Plane is still there. The AN-12 with spare parts and engineers is parked next to it. Nose of the the AN-225 is open again with a 60 ton crane next to it. Looks like they're unloading it, or at least partly.
Right maingear is seriously damaged due to a too tight corner during pushback. No ETD yet for either the AN-12 and the AN-225, but both are parked next to the A4 highway.

Quoting Keesje (Reply 10): component, difficult repair? I can imagine some AN225 components are not on stock..
It's repaired and ready to go...
Now it's waiting for a good combination of weather (winds/direction) and slight decrease of inbound traffic at AMS, since this machine can only take rwy 36L for t/o, while 18R is active for arrivals...
New estimated departure is foreseen during the coming night (0100Z)
