Lybian An-124 At Zürich?

Mon Apr 29, 2002 7:08 pm

Does anybody know what the aircraft does at ZRH? Is it still there? Will there be regular operations with this bird?

Hi Swissgabe,
the An124 from Libya departed yesterday around 1600 (scheduled time of departure 1100).
with a relative short runway distance. (is it normal for those An124's ???). The flight goes out to Tripoli.

PS: I've a smallpic of it from ZRH webcams.

The aircraft came from Mitiga, an airport near Tripoli and flew back to Tripoli International Airport.

That is one of the nicest looking things I've seen flying. I low the AN-124 and that scheme looks amazing.

I have seen some AN124 already at ZRH and also remarked the short runway they need for take off.

Remember they are a military transport plane, they MUST get of the ground as soon as they can.
