The An-225 spent most of the 1990's in storage, with a second example partially constructed. I know nothing of what happened to the incomplete second airframe, I assume it will be finished off now that type will go into production.
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I thought the largest aircraft in the world would read something like:
2. An-124 Ruslan
3. Lockheed C-5 Galaxy
4. Boeing 747-400
5. Boeing 747 100/200/300
I assume after this five, the next largest types would be something like the 777, A340, A330 and the trijets (MD-11, DC-10, L-1011). Does anyone know which would be the largest out of the aircraft I've just mentioned?
Obviously the list will change when the A380 makes it's maiden flight.
