Hey heard the 225 was supposed to be making a few stops in N. America the next 2 weeks, was wondering if this was true? Heard ANC, YYC, MCO were possibilities. Anyone else know it's schedule?

Dunno, but I checked flightaware to see if it was currently airborne and it was not.... But I did see for the first time (for me) the 787 on the airborne list...

Hope to see the An-225 again, even as contrails. Saw it at IWA a few years back and it was most impressive.

It departed EMA for Kiev Gostomel on 27 Oct 09 (routing was HNL-YEG-EMA-Kiev)
After that confirmed sighting and movement, the only other report I can find is that it's ModeS code was reported as being detected from Cyprus about 1 week later.
Can't find any reports of it from late Nov or from Dec.

Out of curiosity, how many hours does the AN 225 fly in a typical month.

Thank you for the link.

A hoard of 73G's, A320's, 738's, CR2's, E145's, A319's, etc.

90 AA MD-82's airborne (when I looked).

But what surprised me is the 144 744's airborne!

And of the 33 MD-11's, we had one from KLM, the rest were FedEx and UPS.  Wink

I would be curious myself. Is it demand or supply constrained?

Due to being such a unique aircraft, it is very hard to guess. One month, it may not fly at all. The next month, it might be in the air whenever available (usually happens after large-scale natural disasters).

Exceptions confirm the rule.

When I get back to work tomorrow at GOAA, I will check to see if there was a cancellation or just if this operation was postponed until after the Holidays - that is my theory, that they might just postpone this until January, but not sure what the load was supposed to be as it was flying through MCO both times empty and just here for a tech/crew rest stop.

Hi Crownvic -

Thanks for the schedule, very informative.

Is it just one flight crew operating the entire trip (GML - VSP).

Reason I ask is because on several legs (ANC, MCO, VVI), the aircraft appears to have already flown 6-8 hours for the day and then "stops" for 11-12 hours or more, which presumably is limitation of the human body more than a mechanical one.
