Size matters! I wouldn't want to be the car driver on the road below when this big fella is in sight.

Antonov has those short landing gears because their engines are raised much higher than those from Airbus or Boeing, thus they can have the plane's belly hug the runway as close as possible without worrying about engine strike, and probably saving them a few hundred pouds of steel in landing gear construction.

Sheesh! Talk about traffic hazards! For airplane freaks like me, I'd be instantly looking up at the aircraft and blubbering uncontrollably...like the guy in front of me doing the same, multiplied many times over around us! Potential chain reaction bang-bangs aplenty. But it is a great shot. Would definately get my attention. I, also, like Russian planes. We don't have the only "smart people" on the planet. The Russians may have "different" ways of doing the same thing, but they get the job done, even if it is unusual. Like those Antonovs! Distinctive landing gear philosophy always give them away.
