It's not so much larger then the C-5.

The C-5 is longer, but the wingspan and take-off weight is a little bit larger. ;)


By the way, the AN-225 is on no airport!!!! I have a list where it was in the last years and looked there, but found nothing.

I've been seaching for Mrya but its a dodgy litlle thing. Probably is on the Antonov factory airport. Or it could be touring arround the world.

Check this site for photos and info.

What do you mean the biggest cargo plane in the world?? You yourself already mentioned the 225. That's the biggest. It's out there on one of the Kiev airfields.
