Antonov An 225 - sadly destroyed

The amazing 6 engined 314 tonne 88’ wingspanned giant of the skies has been destroyed by the russian army at her homebase of Hostomel airport. What a shame. A senseless waste and a shame.

I watched abandoned engineering a few weeks back and they showed the factory, and there is a half built one waiting for someone to need one.

Very sad. A beautiful plane. One of a kind. Hopefully it’ll get rebuilt in the future.

Used to see it over Doncaster as it flew into Robinhood Airport.
Amazing site.
