AN-225, are you sure? Is it maybe not an AN124? Keep us posted anyways?
BTW, Where is YQG?

There are no 225's flying at the moment so probably a 124.

I think YQG is Windsor Ontario ??

It's a 124 they are there all the time, the move big locomotives for Bombardier.

Slawko is right....

It was an AN-124, as our local ABC station reported it at noon. It slid to within the distance of a football field from a residential area. I thought they moved automotive parts though??

YQG is Windsor, Ontario (right across the Detroit River).

Does anyone have any pictures?
Cheers, Fqtv
P.S. Is the AN124 the biggest airplane in the world, or have I got it mixed up

The AN225 is bigger than the 124. I believe that the AN124 is the largest in production, or at least was
 
So far this is the oldest I've been.

Yeah, AN-124 is not the biggest. An-225 is, which is by FAR bigger than An-124.
