No red cheatline anymore, its blue now. Minor change, but as it is the largest aircarft worldwide, still significant to mention.
As for me, the red was smarter, somehow nicer. The blue cheatline is somehwat reminding of old-school, thankfully bygone Soviet Aeroflot.

When you're THAT big, I don't think it matters what color is used. People notice the size on this girl, not her make-up.  Wink

I do not like that "livery". Classic look though totally lack of imagination.

Anyway I do like the Blue line more than the older red one. The blue is the same blue that rest of the fleet has  Smile

I agree. Especially with a name like Mriya, which means 'Dream' in Russian and even better 'Imagination' in Ukrainian.

I don't know, I don't particularly like it.. I guess I'll have to get used to seeing this on pics from now on!


Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

There's an easy solution: Remember what button it was, then switch to Russian (or is it Ukrainian?). Click on it, and then switch back to English.

A question about the An-225:

Is Antonov using this bird regularly? Is it profitable?
If yes, why not expanding its fleet? Modern technology and the already available knowledge would make it rather easily possible, i think.

Any thoughts welcome.

It looks classy and simple.
I am happy they didn't go to a generic EuroWhite with painted tail.

I may be alone in this but I think the An-225 is the most pleasing of all the Ukrainian and Russian aircraft. Like the 747 it has personality - almost a human quality.

You're not alone, well sort of not alone.
The AN-225 is my favorite Antonov. I believe the design and build of the AN-225 started under the Soviet Union. Ukraine was not a separate country at the time the AN-225 first flew.
As far as Soviet aircraft, the IL-62 is my favorite of them all.
As far as the Antonov division, the 225 is my favorite.

all it's missing is a cccp. keep it simple and no sign of free market image tricks. it could use an overhaul from lippencott like TACA. a couple of million dollars for a few swoopy lines.

And the red star, he, he.

When I first saw the picture I didn't think much of it, what livery change?

Anyway, I'm sure our Russian and Ukranian friends could probably correct me, but isn't the 225 a larger 125 and it's original purpose was to haul the Soviet space shuttle, Buran?

Even if she wears an ugly all grey livery she'll be noticed by everyone including those who don't give a damn about airplanes! IMO she looks nice, Blue's my favorite color after all.  Smile

Nice idea, although "6 engines 4 oversized cargo" would be more appropriate since her range is anything but long when fully loaded!

The 747 has a personality. She says "I am the most beautiful Queen of the skies that has ever been and will ever be!"

The An-225 also has a personality. She says "I am the biggest and most sturdy Russian Bubushka you will ever meet!"

Well I'm neither Russian nor Ukranian, but hopefully I can help  Smile ... As I recall the AN225 is a "stretch"  stretch  AN124 with 2 more engines. I do believe the the original purpose was for the space shuttle, hence the double stabilizers. Someone else could probably provide a little more detail.

??? I´m sure you have the wrong idea of CI agency pricing and that the process to decide on those "swoopy lines" is easy. To do it right is damn complicated and elaborate.

Yes, and sadly, sigh, that connot be said of all those sleek, modern, generic tubes leaving the factory nowadays and in the years to come. Let it be the 767s, 777s, A330s or A350s, all those boring jets will be forgotten in a few decades. The A380 is the only exception (due to its size, not nececessarily beauty). The 747 is a historic milestone in aviation, recognised by everybody, and by most who have no clue of aviation otherwise.

I don´t know why, but maybe the AN-124 is enough for 99% of all outsized Aircargo? it would be nice to see a few more "Mriyas" though. I´ve never seen it so far.

I agree.
That is partially why I love the A340, A380, IL-96 and 747 so much.
Those are the only cool distinctive aircraft that are in production today.
I am glad that Boeing is keeping the 747 alive and going forward with the 747-8.
I just can't get excited about the upcoming 787 and A350.
