Some very sad aviation news hit Ukraine, the world, and aviation enthusiasts...
The majority of everyone most likely knows what happened to the Antonov AN-225 Mriya by now. This plane was the only one ever made of its kind, which makes it even more sad that it was lost...
Antonov is a Ukrainian based airplane manufacturer that produces several types of aircraft. Many people have heard of the Boeing B747 -which is known as the queen of the skies amongst aviation enthusiasts- and the Airbus A380. The A380 is tagged as the largest passenger aircraft. However, not very many know about the Antonov AN-225 Mriya. Both the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A380 have four engines. The Antonov 225 has a total of six engines; three under each wing. The 225 is the largest plane in the world.
Unfortunately, this wonderful plane was destroyed...
I was very saddened to read about the devastating destruction of this plane. The only one of these planes -the only Antonov AN 225 Mriya- is gone.
Unfortunately that is the end of this gentile giant -for now...
I thought I would make this post because these weekly aviation flyday posts are where I take time to reflect on not just my aviation journey, but the aviation news as well.
