Antonov 225 Engine Fire!

The biggest plane in the world, the Antonov 225 had an engine fire on Friday in Germany. Credits to @Maxmustang for the find in his safety list yet I have made this as most people would not have realised this iconic aircraft caught fire. No serious damage if any.

It was also the first time that the AN225 rolled over these fantastic bridges at Leipzig-Halle (LEJ/EDDP).

Does anyone have any accurate data regarding on how many engines the Antonov can safely operate with?

one is enough, considering the Buran is on the top with engine running ;)

Well, do you know it’s exactly 4 or is that just a guess?

A guess. I don’t think it can be less than 3 TBH

At least they’re resuming production of the An225.

It’s nothing compared to the even more dreaded 7 engine approach.

From Wikpedia
In August 2016, representatives from Ukraine’s Antonov and Aerospace Industry Corporation of China, an import-export company operating out of Hong Kong,[18] signed an agreement to recommence production of the An-225, with China now planning to procure and fly the first model by 2019.[19][20] The aviation media cast doubt on the production restart, indicating that due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict needed parts from Russia are unavailable, although they may be made in China instead.[21]

Well they’ve got more chance of an engine fire out of all jet aircraft, don’t they?
