Is that one of the Antonov 225's in the background? Absolutely massive aircraft.

I remember our family taking a vacation to Russia several years back. We took a river cruise from St. Petersburg to Moscow. It was amazing to see how much old, or at least older, equipment was still on the roads. Most of the newer looking trucks looked to be municipal vehicles of some sort. Almost all privately operated trucks (or what looked like them) were units that had to be at least dating to the mid '90s, some quite a bit older. It was quite a trip.

Hello Troy,

Specialy "Russia" and certainly all the "not european" parts are "famous" for their "old stuff" on the roads!!!!!
Many aren't even "that old" as they are "looking" but still "based" on "old designs and technics"!!!!!
(many "modern" trucks has only "electronical troubles" for the "cold surcomstances"!!!!!!)

The plane is "only" an Antonov AN-124, the "little brother" of the Antonov AN-225!!!!!
(There is only 1 "operational" An-225 and that one is "flying" in the "Antonov-Designburo" colors!!!!!)
See "www.airliners.net" for very many good pictures of both types!!!!!!

Greetings from Germany,

The DAFman, Leo
