Did I See An AN-124 At IAD?

(My apologies if this was posted elsewhere; I did a search and found nothing.)

I saw what I believe was an AN-124 on short final for 1R at IAD on Monday, right after a LH 744 landed. I was northbound on Sully Road and the aircraft was behind me, so I didn't get a detailed look. By the time I could pull over to the shoulder, the aircraft was behind the trees, nearly over the threshold.

I looked on flightaware.com but didn't see anything like what I saw listed.

Was this an AN-124 and, if so, can anyone confirm it? When did it depart and why was it there?

Thanks, BN727flyr

Probably - Polet AN-124 RA-82077 was scheduled to arrive into Dulles around 24/25 AUG to pick up some power generation equipment going to Japan.

Check flightaware - they departed as POT896.
