Description: The AN-225 is the largest aircraft in the world and is the only aircraft that features six turbofan engines. It has the capability to transport up to 250 tonnes of cargo, including single pieces weighing up to 200 tonnes over short and medium haul routes. Originally developed as a transport for the Buran Spaceplane, the Antonov An-225 Mryia has since found its calling as the world’s largest cargo aircraft—holding over 200 world records, including a single-item payload of 189,980 kilograms (418,830 pounds)and an airlifted total payload of 253,820 kg (559,580 lb). On 11 August 2009, the heaviest single cargo item ever sent by air was loaded onto the An-225. At 16.23 m (53.2 ft) long and 4.27 m (14.0 ft) wide, the generator for a gas power plant weighed in at a record 189 tonnes (417,000 lb). The aircraft stretches 88.4 meters (290 feet) from wingtip to wingtip and 84 meters (276 feet) from nose to tail. That’s 8.4 meters (22.5 feet) wider than Airbus’ A380.
For this tour pilots may use any aircraft in the HEAVY or SUPER HEAVY category, e.g., 747, A330, A380, AN225. Heavy Military transports are also allowed.
