Hate to see it destroyed. Saw it up close one time when it came in to KMEM a number of years ago... It was quite a magnificent site to see... Got to see it land and take off... On climb out due to its size, it looks like it is crawling very slow... A world wide loss!
I understand one engine was off the plane for maintenance. Couldn't they have flown it out empty with the remaining five, and a cover over the open strut of the sixth? Or is this idea just plain dumb?
As a consolation to the loss of this AN-225, there is the unfinished one that resides somewhere near Kiev. I read that as of a few years ago someone was trying to find money to complete it. I'm sure this will expadite things to get it complete and flyable now.
I read where there was one of the An-124s lost, also
what a shame..i saw it once a long time ago,and it was huge! it was kind of like a whale trying to get off the ground!there will not be another made anytime soon im sure...
I wait see to much false information coming out of the that country.
