For the gent from England, for a start, the high wing gives you stability due to the pendulum effect of all the mass suspended below it. Second, a swept wing like that fitted to the An225 acts like natural DIhedral, making it more stable. Aircraft like this are designed with ANhedral so it as actually possible to make them manuever at all, check out other aircraft like the BAe146, C-17, et al. Honestly, you don't want a cargo plane walking on the edge of a razor...

WOW!! Looks like it took up all of our cargo area

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu February 25, 2010:
I think that this aircraft would be
quite tricky to fly. Anhedral wings (slope downwards from the root) are inherently UNstable contrary to the comment below. Couple this with a slow climb rate and an enormous mass this thing must be a beast to fly!

Always fasinating to see this plane.

Should not be to hard to fly, inherently stable design. Of course you need to leave some room while flying and on the ground :).

I wonder how difficult it is to fly this size of a plane =]
