Nice An-225 approach and great close taxi by active gates - Video

Great video all around. Seems like it's from Canada. The part that made my eyes pop the most was the taxi near the gates (9:17). That was the best for me because I've never seen an An-225 weave through ground traffic like that. They make it look really easy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Epsxg8OEInQ
