Every time this antonov takes off and lands, it proofs aerodinamics does not mean style. Nose tip seems cracked down, and the whole bird just seems too ┬┤┬┤straight``. Congratulations for the color balance.

GOD! I saw it in 1989 and thought it wasn't use anymore, I was wrong, how impressive, Russians have tremendous planes.

How many wheels? 32?
6 engines?
What's inside? The biggest freighter ever, isn't it?
Excellent picture, and this plane is rarely used so you were lucky and manage to get it right, congratulation.

Good to see the old eastern gal in Texas. I saw here one evening at Bush while landing on a United flight. Totally dwarfed a fedex DC-10.

Firstly, the clarity of the shot...I don't think that it could be better focussed than it is...it illustrates the undercarriage, and engines beautifully, and I wish that I had taken it...G.C.Walker

Very nice shot - nice colours, nice angle, nice bank on the plane. There are two little things that may not be important on the photo, though it can be my screen: Tiny grain on the engines and the "UR-82060" is a little jagged. Every thing else is GOOOOOOOD ;-)

Cheers!

Perfect exposure & composition. Great detail in both light and shadow on the plane. I like the clouds below the plane and clear sky above it.
