How'd you like to fly this machine back to Russia? One of its engines is larger than a pick-up truck.
There was a little excitement recently at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas with the arrival of the world's largest aircraft, a Russian Antonov 225. It was there to deliver a very large power transformer for Nevada Power, which had been built in Turkey. Apparently G.E. or Westinghouse weren't capable, or they lost the 'bid' to Turkey.
Note the wingspan is just about a football field length. Aircraft specifications are at the bottom.
Some of the specs are:
Number of wheels. 24
Max T.O. Weight.....1,322,750 lbs. (Over 660 Tons.)
Max payload.. 551,150 lbs. (Over 275 Tons)
Engines......six Lotarev D-18T turbofans
Max speed....530 MPH
Cruise speed. 495 MPH
Only one aircraft built and it's not for sale.
