Antonov 225 (the Thicc Boi) @PANC

Hey guys!

The world’s largest airplane, the Antonov 225 Mriya, came through PANC a few days ago. As soon as I got the notification, I mentioned it to my mom, who suggested the idea first that we go see it. I spotted this aircraft and lots of others, including the MD-80!!

We’re gonna do the other planes first and save the biggest for last. So, here are the pics!

Ryanair, lol. Here’s a CASA 212 of Ryan Air Services (sorry about the fence, lol)

As the big boi gets closer, here’s a FedEx MD-11 going to Memphis.

A long time ago, this was the world’s largest airplane. Here’s our Queen sporting the beautiful Cathay Pacific Cargo livery.

Aloha!

And now…

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls,

This. Is.

Here she is, ladies and gentlemen. From the moment I first laid eyes on her, she was beautiful. Still is. Magnificent.

She totally buttered the landing too! Such a huge machine making butter like that 🧈 🔥

Here’s her taxiing.

I know some of these could have been straightened a bit, but I was lazy writing this draft 😂

Thanks for reading! Let me know if there’s anything that I could do better.

I will have an awesome video/vlog about this later today!
