Wow, one of the smallest against one of the biggest airliner... Antonov 124-100 (RA-82043) vs. Piper Archer. Guess who is gonna win that battle... I already have made up my mind!

Just like that scene in Finding Nemo when Marlin meets the sharks. Antonov: "Hello....". Hope he remembers that Pipers are friends, not food!

Just a fantastic shot, The piper looks so small, if the Antonov needed a new engine you could just strap the piper to it's wing.

Being more into smaller planes than bigger and heavier ones, I was thinking to wake turbulence (or ATC requests to speed up to 190kts on approach to separate from the traffic behind)... difficult life for a PA28!

If the piper was sucked into the Engine of the Antonov that would be described as a birdstrike.

I bet the '124 is trying to sell the Piper steroids. "Just take one, and you can be like me."

A nicely spotted opportunity, well taken!

As for the "big is beautiful" brigade, remember there's at least one thing bigger about the Cherokee, and that's the sheer number of airports around the world that it can visit that the Antonov never could. See the world, fly GA! :)

Piper: When I filled in the section on the request for security, I didn't expect they'd give me this. Wonderful!
