Hello IFC, today I had the chance to see the departure of a Antonov 124 at MSP! I woke up a 5am just to see it but it was well worth the payoff of seeing such a legendary aircraft that comes here every few years.
Lining up on runway 12R.
This picture below is my favorite and the best quality I had, here it is accelerating past the tower.
And here it is climbing past the Delta Techops hangars.
Overall it was a great experience seeing such a legendary aircraft, and I highly recommend attempting to see it yourself to understand the actual size of this aircraft!
