An-225 In Brazil?  
User currently offlinejmbarros12 From Brazil, joined Nov 2007, 249 posts, RR: 0
Posted (4 years 5 months 1 day 14 hours ago) and read 4888 times:

Just seen on the net that the An-225 will be arriving at GRU on February 14th, next Sunday, to deliver some huge oil equipments to Petrobras´ oil facilities at Paulinia, about 130km from GRU and 30km from VCP.

I don´t know if this info is true or not, but if it´s, wouldn´t it make more sense if it landed at VCP instead of GRU?

This is the first time the An-225 lands in Latin America. It will land in GIG and GRU.

It is not oil equipment but natural gas equipment for the Paulinia-Jacutinga natural gas pipeline. The An 225 will carry three massive valve for the gas pipeline.

Btw, the An-225 can carry 250 tonnes.... possibly the biggest cargo plane on earth? Can anyone confirm?

Thanks for the info, Hardiwv.

But why not landing on VCP? It´s 100km closer to Paulínia than GRU.

Yes, you are right!!! One of the rivals of the Mriya could be the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy or even the Antonov AN124 but nothing to do.

No idea. I know that the AN-225 was scheduled to come to VCP in 2009 but was later cancelled. Maybe there have been some issues? Note that the AN-225 will stop in Suriname (PBM) before landing in GIG and GRU.

Thanks, I also got confirmation that the An225 is the biggest cargo plane on earth. How many are there still operational?

I have no definite answer, but the following could be considered as possible answers:

1) the Brazil office of Chapman Freeborn responsible for the cargo flight is nearer GRU;

2) specification of GRU runaway vis-à-vis VCP runaway.

GRU > 09L/27R and 09R/27L: 85/F/B/W/T and W indicates that the runaway suppor pneumatic pressure above 217 psi.

VCP > 15/33: 56/F/B/X/T and X indicates that the runaway supports penumatic pressure of up to 217 psi.

How much business does this plane get?

Is there such a large world market in order to constantly fill this jet with cargo?

Apparently it will not land in GIG only in GRU, but this is not confirmed yet.

So, does this mean she will be returning to MIA? I missed her yesterday, and I would love to snap a few pics if this is true.

So far, the official schedule is IAH-GIG-GRU. Seems that part of the cargo goes to Rio de Janeiro and Macae.

A lot, the capacity is over 250ton of cargo. And regarding the use of the plane, there's always opportunities worldwide, like the efforts in Haiti.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Please share the pics. I am wondering where they will park this huge aircraft in GRU as we know there is lack of parking space and the An-225 will stay about 24h parked in GRU.

Lipe, before landing in GIG and GRU it will also land in PBM (Suriname).

Lipe, just got the info that the GIG stop was cancelled. The beast will fly straight from PBM to GRU.

Good reminder. But this flight only confirms how busy is Houston market to Brazil. Of course it's a one time shipment that does not happen all times, but there are much more projects going on in Brazil.

GIG was supposed to be a technical stop because of certain issues so probably they have worked it out for the airplane to fly directly to GRU. PBM is also a technical stop.

No doubt and we can see that oil&gas market is not all to Rio but also a big share goes to São Paulo and other regions in Brazil.
