    Is that what I saw come in last night? It was clearly huge but I couldn’t really see it in the dark.

    For Expo 86 my family flew up to see my grandparents and to go to the Abbotsford Airshow. We got slotted in behind a AN124, and a C5... in a Cessna 175. Yeah, the 124 is huge, but its still not as big as the 224. That thing is a monster.

    Russia sent an AN-124 with medical supplies to JFK on Wednesday. Same plane on it's way home?

    Thanks for completing the link young man. I new it was related to that flight and nice gesture form Russia.

    Just didn't connect the dots. Interesting it flew to Reno to refuel for the leg to Anchorage.

    You are welcome. Too bad I am not young, but how did you know I was having a beer when I posted it.

    I stood under the 224 after it landed at kennedy space center and the condensation on it's wings was like it was raining.
