(fn 01-01 / Prototype) Now this is what I call luck. We were spotting at Paris CDG, but we left for Le Bourget because CDG was too boring in the afternoon. After a detour of 25 minutes we arrived at LBG. We searched for the An-225 but we could't find it anywhere. So we drove to the runway spot near the 'Heli-Zone'. It was quite crowded there and an English spotter said: "You're right on time". After two minutes she started her take-off roll. And there she is: the 'Dream'.
