R.I.P. the 0.01% realism left on TS1 if I’m being honest.

I personally think it will be unrealisticto have more than 2 of the aircraft at an airport at the same time. Yes, I know there is a feature request out there but im just giving my opinion.

Cool, but not a good idea for me. Just imagine It being released and the amount of people just playing around with it. It’s huge. It burns more fuel than any other aircraft. The only 6 powered jet engine with an impressive sound. But I recommend the Antonov An 124 RUSLAN, as requested as well in the features. It would be a better idea.

Is that why they took away the space shuttle?

This would be cool indeed but I think the data for this aircraft is EXTREMELY scarce and hard to find since this is a rare aircraft. On the other hand it would be cool flying this but think about the “trolling” on casual server.

I know it’s been a while since anyone has posted on here, but this would be great! Got my vote

You have my vote :)

Lol imagine on expert server everyone using this 😂 I dunno if every gate/parking can handle his hug planenor fit it but it’s 👌👌

Not every gate can fit the A380, so…

Imagine the Casual server filled with the Antonov 225. There is only one existing Antonov 225 in real life. Second one is left half full in scraps in its hangar.

I definitely prefer the Antonov 124 for the realism. As I stated above. It is operated by more than one operator and flies all around the world supplying Heavy Payloads of Cargo everyday. In Infinite Flight, this aircraft will just stick in with all the other Cargo haul aircrafts around. It looks identical and fits in the Cargo family. Like the Boeing 747.

Good luck taxiing with 32 wheels :)

That is a fun challenge to do honestly. 😅 You mean 16 wheels, not 32.

There would need to be some sort of algorithm allowing only one of these per server

We need new atc command “all aircrafts hold position”, Pushback approved”

Yep, always naming myself “The King”, when flying it on the Expert Server, getting escorted by tens of jets flying around me 😄

That would be cool to see though, and aircraft being flown only by one person per server, so seeing it at the same airport as you would super cool. Maybe you could reserve a time and flight for it (I would rather the 124 though)

Imagine people taxing with a lot of AN-225 in Casual Server.😂😂

I’d love to fly around this in Kiev Gostopel Airport actually.
