I was watching planes at the cell phone lot at MSP today, and about 4:50 P.M an interesting plane landed. The wings came out of the roof of the plane, and there were two engines on each wing. The plane was very large. It was blue and white and said Volga Dnpr, i think. Under the words there was russian writing. After landing, the plane taxied over near the signature flight support center, and by the time i left, it was parked over by the northwest airlines employee parking near the humphrey terminal. Anyone know why this plane was at MSP, and where it was coming from?

Quoting Broke (Reply 5): For your information, Antonov is located in the Ukrane and not in Russia. Both countries were part of the USSR but are now independent. Russian is the official language of the Ukrane.
I think you mean ukrainian is the official language of Ukraine.
Also, many ukrainians do not like when people refer to ukraine as the ukraine. The 'the' implies that they are part of something larger(i.e. USSR), and many ukrainians would like to forget about that.
