Amazing sight, it looks like from another world to me. Alone the wing root is as big as the Prop parked next to it, hopefully it will fly one day!

Its a shame to see this one sitting half built... there are so many uses for it... some tycoon or private venture needs to pick this up where it was left off...

This is a rare and fascinating glimpse of an uncompleted and unusual airframe, one which hopefully will fly someday.

Has it a programmed launching date?

It seems that it will never fly again. Ukraine has no money to make it flyable.

5 stars because it is so unusual. And I love how that An-140 would almost fit inside the wing root of the 225.
