My 250th picture on A.net! Had to be something special...of course ;) I could call this 'the heaviest touchdown in aviation'. Thé eyecatcher of the 1989 Le Bourget airshow: An-225 with Russian Space Shuttle 'Buran' for the first time in the west. The smoketrail was at least 100 meters! Thanks to Wietse Degraaf for the extra photoshop.
