A nice symmetrical view from behind. The verticals stabilizers are the size of a smaller aircraft's wings. The oversized cargo it was picking up on Boxing Day can be seen on trailers on the left. Note how the aircraft is parked on a taxiway and not on a hardstand because of its size.

The distortion of the wide angle lens and long exposure give an amazing perspective capturing the size and presence of this giant! :jaw agape:

I never realised how big this beast was when looking at other pictures. But this just screams "I am Goliath!". You've got to respect the sheer size. Though I always found the engines too 'tiny'. 5* without doubt!

This is the most beautiful photo i ever seen for an artificial bird!!! specially the both - horizontal-and-vertical stabilizers and the massive wings with the big six engines.
RESPECT to An-225 Mariya and RESPECT to the engineers who built it.

I saw this aircraft at an airshow in edmonton and i was amazed at the aeronautical engineering achievement. i have watched it land and take off in person twice and marvel at the performance of the aircraft and crew. i have a model of it on my microsoft flight simulator and enjoy 'flying' cargo to my favorite destinations around the world. congratulations to antonov design bureau.
