Antonov 124 @ DTW

Thu Sep 20, 2012 4:39 am

Greetings:

I spotted an Antonov 124 at Detroit Metro this afternoon at about 3:30PM. It was on taxiing on Mike toward the approach end of Runway 21R, however; I do not believe it was departing. Does anyone know where this bird came from / where she's going?

Thanks

Looks like it came in from France.

Thank you for the info. Any idea when it will be departing? I'd like to catch it this time.

I saw it this morning driving out of the airport, heck you can't miss it. It is parked outside the former GM hanger, on the west side of 3R/21L.

I have seen an AN-124 at DTW a couple of times. I have always wondered about what kind of cargo it was delivering?
