THIS AIROPLANE WAS AT THE NIAGARA FALLS AIRPORT RECENTLY (TWICE) TO LOAD COMPRESSORS TO FLY DIRECTLY TO SAUDI ARABIA
32 wheels! -- The World's Biggest Airplane, the Russian Antonov 225.
Attached pics are of the Russian behemoth when it came into Medford ,
OR , to pick up two Sikorsky fire fighting helicopters to take overseas --
it cost $1,000,000 to transport them.
It is amazing something this huge can stay in the air.
The Wright brothers would never have dreamed it.
