I'm sort of having a panic attack right now because I just found out that the An-225 will be in ATL tomorrow, the only day I'll be there this month...
There's an article in the local paper about a massive turbine they're moving out of a GE plant and shipping to Argentina.

If anyone can get me more info on when and where the plane will be, it would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a link to the article (or at least which local paper it's in)?

The info about the Antonov is at the end of the article...

Even if I don't know the times, can I assume it would park at South Cargo? What's the best place to get over there and see it?

Local rumor is that it's an AN-124 (NOT the -225), arriving Friday and parking at North Cargo.

I heard AN-124 parking at South Cargo. That's what happened last time the A124 was in town.

They would never put the -124 on the North Cargo ramp. South cargo is the only ramp that can handle large cargo.
