Aviation Photo #1312364 Antonov An-225 Mriya - Antonov Design Bureau

930 of 1,389
One of the most unique cockpits in the world. The flightdeck of the Antonov 225 is without a doubt the most spectacular cockpit I have visisted. Check out those six throttle levers, the pilots must get a great sensation when they open the throttle on this giant. The outside view is blocked by the opened nose.

Very interesting photo of what appears to be an extremely archaic cockpit.

Takes me back to the early days of Jet Aviation, and some very fond memories. This would be the ultimate of todays cargo ac if this cockpit technology was brought into the modern era.

I think that the photo has admirable detail and provides a good overview of the cockpit environment.

Ever seen a russian aircraft without a "Miefquirl" as we call it, meaning a "stink stirrer" (open ventilator).

The controls are with the perfect light tone, they seem to be running.

It is old (late 70's early 80's i believe) and I also believe it has a 5-7 man flight deck.

I think it needs an fms.... if it doesn't already. a 5 man crew? holy cow. truly the titanic of the sky.

This bird had its first flight nearly 2 years after the A320! Just wondering if you can actually move all throttle levers with one hand.

***This is actually the most significant achievement of the ukrainian aircraft design school***

Your statement is incorrect,there is no such a thing as "ukrainian aircraft design school",this aircraft was built in Soviet Union by Soviet Union. It would be unfair to call this aircraft "ukranian".

Ukraine has the most amazing aircraft. The Mighty six engines of the plane produce more than 300,000 lbs. of thrust just to get the plane going

These two little blowers on top of the panel seem to be russian trademark. Note the big ruder pedals, they look funny.

Fantastic, and thanks for sharing this detailed photo- the slight wide angle really helps the perspective.

Antonov's: build some more please!

Impressive enough, but add the engineer's and navigator's panels too...just amazing that it all works. I love the fans, seems like almost every Russian plane has them, even small ones.
