AN-225 Coming to YYZ May 27th

Mon May 25, 2020 1:46 pm

Heads-up (social distancing) YYZ spotters. After the early May visit of the might AN-225 visit to YMX, it is scheduled to return to YYZ on May 27th.

The AN-225 has been flying all over the world to help deliver medical supplies to support the fight against COVID-19. It recently landed in Quebec and we’re excited to welcome it to Pearson on May 27.

It flew to YMX for its second visit of the month over the weekend and Flightradar shows it is on the ground there as of today. Flightradar does not show it with any flights planned. If flying to YYZ on Wednesday, it will likely will be arriving from YMX.

It is currently having some engine work done while it is here. Norlinor posted on their facebook that they are working on one of the engines so date of departure for Ymx is unknown at the moment.

ADB's Antonov An-74 just arrived at Mirabel carrying spare parts for the faulty An-225 engine, after flying GML-KEF-YVR-YMX.

Currently in the air on the way back to ANC from MIrabel - I guess the faulty engine was repaired fairly quickly.

Back to China for more medical supplies for Canada ... assuming the YYZ site is correct and plans haven't changed?

Approximately 1715 arrival, from ANC, May 29. Departure would be mid-day 30th afterwards.

Heading back to China right now to pick up more supplies.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.

Make that YYR, Goose Bay. Vancouver (YVR) would have been a serious detour! :D

So the arrival day has changed to the 30th now?? I'm dying to see this. Thankful for a few days off.
Thanks for the info the other day EK241YYZ. I'm guessing the arrival time has also changed.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Just a heads up for those who want to see it takeoff. Twice while it was in Ymx it was scheduled to leave at 8am it lifted off about 30 min ahead of schedule. So showing up at 8 is a tad risky haha
