The Poles are disappointed with the arrival of the Ukrainian An-225 Mriya


On the eve of the Ukrainian An-225 flew to Warsaw with a cargo of medical aid from China. Despite the quarantine regime, this event gathered a full house at the airport. Chopin. It was expected that a transport aircraft, whose carrying capacity is 250 tons, will bring half of the envisaged 400 tons to the Polish capital.


However, the reality turned out to be more severe: according to contradictory data, the largest aircraft in the world delivered either 80 tons of medical care or 96 tons. This caused disappointment on the part of the Polish public, who hoped to receive as many medical supplies as possible at a time.

If Antonov really delivered only 80 tons of cargo, it turns out that he used less than 1/3 of his 250 tons of transport capacity. And for what we paid 12 million zlotys?

- writes the famous Polish blogger Basia Skotnicka.

This cargo could be much more profitable to transport by Boeing 747 or Airbus A330, but then it would not cause such a general hype

- echoed him Marian Paździoch.

Lifting capacity of famous transporters:
McDonnell Douglas MD-11 - 89,2 tons
Boeing 747 - 120 tons
Antonov An-124 - 120 tons
Antonov An-225 - 250 tons

Why did they choose the An-225, because 100 tons fit in a regular Boeing 747? I think only for marketing reasons

- argues the third Pole.



A reader named Alexei Anopreenko objected quite reasonably to this, hinting that the useful volume of Antonov was much larger than that of a Boeing:

1 ton of medical masks is significantly more than one cubic meter. The load is light but voluminous.


Mriya flew with an intermediate landing in Almaty, where it left part of the cargo. It’s good that the plane brought at least something

- Reader with the nickname maxthebrindle found his explanation for the “lack”.

The Poles are disappointed with the arrival of the Ukrainian An-225 Mriya

But there was a real party at the airport fence. People, portable grills, sausages, beer and live music, and this beautiful airplane is overhead. The police only pretended not to notice us. Thanks to the authorities for such an event during the pandemic!

- Not without irony, another commentator tried to find positive in what happened.

      Stupid article for stupid people! 100 tons of medicines with a total volume of about 1000 cubic meters - such a cargo volume will not fit in any Boeing, read TTX.

    - Well, what is so surprising ... - Moreover, in Kazakhstan a part of the cargo was unloaded ... - And maybe there will be a return flight to China ... - And here the plane can be filled to capacity ...
    - In general, such a colossus, under the guise of delivering humanitarian aid and medical equipment, you can easily supply military equipment ... - And China can use such an aircraft in the future ... - And this is just a “test balloon” ...

      The 4th dozen is on the plane. I would not have fallen from the strain, but under the Ukrainian "supervision".

      They knew how to build beautiful and powerful planes in many hated “alliances”, and now all that remains is to quietly envy one and often run to their church, pray that others can fly longer.

          You naively think that everyone who puts you a minus immediately writes the rationale below, hee hee - it is naive. laughing
          I thought so too until recently, but it is not so at all.

    After a joyful outing at the airport fence, and sharing the virus, many people will be even more disappointed.
    The main thing is window dressing, this, after all, has long been known. Psheks cannot do otherwise.

      It was necessary that everything that did not go inside in volume was tied up with electrical tape on top and only then through the scales to take off. good
