An-225 emerging from the fog and immediately hiding in it impressed the Europeans

A video of the spectacular landing of the Soviet super-heavy transport aircraft An-225 "Mriya" at the Polish airport Rzeszow-Jasenka on January 9, 2022 is spreading on social networks. The "giant" suddenly appeared out of the fog and literally a few seconds later also disappeared into it. Judging by the comments left under the video, the Europeans were amazed by the colorful flight of the aircraft in poor visibility conditions.

At first, the corresponding hum indicated the approach of the transporter. Then the An-225 slowly and majestically floated out of the haze, cutting through the thick fog with its wing. Flying over the heads of the assembled observers, the liner disappeared and left behind a path of clear blue sky.

Some comments from European YouTube users:

Mriya works wonders!

- wrote Sergey Gonyakin.

A very beautiful tunnel was left behind the plane

- said Tomas Kruk.

Pilot ace! Plant such a car in the fog! Respect!

- noted the skill of the pilots M.K. Jacek.

The fog parted in front of the An-225, like the sea in front of Moses

- Mikhail Gudzenko drew an analogy.

Fantasy! Phenomenal footage!

- posted by a user with the nickname Polska na Kołach.

An-225 "Mriya" is the largest cargo-lifting aircraft in the entire history of aviation. The liner is capable of transporting multi-purpose cargo with a total weight of about 250 tons. So, inside the fuselage of "Mriya" can fit fifty cars, 16 universal containers weighing 10 tons each or mono-cargoes weighing about 200 tons.

    Needless to say, beautiful and majestic. What a pity that they ruined the design bureau, the plant, and the country.

    An-225 made its first flight back in 1988.
    Direct evidence of the economic power of the mighty USSR.

      So, what is next?
      Cooking won't work.
      Making new spare parts is a crazy time - Pshek's friends will take a lot of money for parking.
      But you can't leave...
      Maybe add an airport?

        Yeah, to be honest, I don't really care. Problems of non-brothers.

    "Nicely sat down" and broke the leg (main landing gear strut).

    This dream was designed and manufactured in one piece. (not counting models, prototypes, and a testing machine that was tested before being destroyed in the laboratory). The second rotted at the factory, not fully assembled. The only task for this superheavy is to transport the oversized Energiya-Buran to Baikonur. The characteristic tail with two well-spaced keels suggests this. For no parameters of bridges, tunnels, interchanges and neighborhoods with a nearby railway track and trolley wires allowed this to be done. The work was colossal, insanely expensive, and mostly for political purposes only. Today there are only 10 airports in the world. able to accept this monster.

    It is symbolic. The prospects of the Ukrainian aviation industry are also vague.
