Not your everyday visitor: the Antonov AN 124

Antonov AN 124Yesterday and today we had the visit of an Antonov 124. It had been over 2 years since one was last spotted at Brussels Airport. A real treat for plane spotters! 

The AN 124 is one of the world’s biggest cargo planes with a length of 69 m and a wingspan of 73 m. Only a few of these aircraft are in service around the world.
The AN 124 is mostly used for exceptional cargo transport. It has carried locomotives, yachts, aircraft fuselages, and a variety of other oversized cargoes.
