I would very much like to see the second Antonov 225 fly someday.

It reminds me very much of a basking shark with its mouth open.

Marvel of Russian Engineering... Am told they cast 7Meter long slabs of Titanium for the WingBox. Landing gear looks butch. An-225 is like the T-100*terminator* in the Air

Look at how the upper deck/cockpit is fitted, it is as if they sliced a narrow body plane in half, placed it on top of a huge metal tube and then added some metal sheets to leave it with a smooth shape.

That's what we call a wingbox!

Take her to the skies please

It's her secret twin sister! Maybe she's jealous because her sister is flying around the world an she can't :-D

Impressive piece of engineering! Should be better protected against the weather though. Good opportunity to change the design to get more fuel efficient engines that are available these days and modern avionics suite and it will make a great outsize freighter.

Unfortunately it will not. It is used for spares to the one that is flying.

Strange how even an "empty shell" needs two bogies on each side at the rear to support the weight :-)

A visitor from - posted Sat August 13, 2011:
Also with new engines, the old ones are lousy.

A visitor from - posted Sat August 13, 2011:
Well it's not rusted out, and it's still here so I'm sure it's still a possibility
