Famous videospotter TopFelya filmed in 4K resolution Mriya Antonov 225 aircraft, landing at Doncaster Sheffield Robin Hood Airport on November 11, 2015, Joinfo.ua reports.
Antonov 225 Mriya (Dream, inspiration in Ukrainian) is a strategic airlift cargo aircraft that was designed by Antonov Design Bureau in the 1980s. It has six turbofan engines and is the longest and heaviest airplane ever built with a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes. It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service. The single example built has the Ukrainian civil registration UR-82060. A second airframe was partially built; its completion was halted because of lack of funding and interest. The first and only An-225 was completed in 1988. After successfully fulfilling its Soviet military missions, it was mothballed for eight years. It was then refurbished and re-introduced, and is in commercial operation with Antonov Airlines carrying oversized payloads.
“This is really very rare visitor. I’m never saw this amazing aircraft before , I want to share it with you. Great experience to see her very close,” – TopFelya commented on the video.
