ANTONOV AN-225 - CLOSE UP PUSHBACK of WORLDS LARGEST AIRCRAFT

Sponsored

I had never seen the Antonov AN 225 (worlds largest aircraft) before - now i was able to see a pushback from very close up standing under the wing with 6 massive engines! As a little surprise visitor it came to the ILA Air Show 2018 in Berlin Schönefeld - and you were not only able to get very close to the aircraft - you could literally touch it and walk inside. Imagine the maintenance of this AN225, changing hydraulic pistons, checking turbines, fluids. Madness! Incredible plane! I saw a C5-B coming in for a landing once. During it's approach, it looked like a cruise ship with wings. This beautiful bird is even larger! Love this plane and thanks to the crew for keeping its capabilities fully operational. Not an easy job at all. I’m stunned to learn this beautiful aircraft was destroyed in a bombing last year! I saw it take off in Houston some years ago, a sight I’ll never forget.
