The six engine beast, Antonov An-225 has recently come out of an 18 month long maintenance check and is now back in the skies delivering supplies to various different countries. There was a rumor that it was supposed to come to Zürich on Friday but that didn’t happen. Instead it’d been announced that the aircraft was off to Paris to deliver some supplies from China.
At 0840Z, @Chris_Wing came into my room and told me to grab my camera because the Antonov was about to fly over our house. Here are a few pictures I took:
The pictures aren’t great as the aircraft was at 34,000ft and my lens can only go to 300mm. Despite it not coming to Zürich, it was still cool to see it fly overhead. The engines are extremely loud. Even as it had past over and was barley visible, the sound of it was still noticeable.
Thanks for viewing my pictures! Stay safe and have a nice day!
