The Drive about the destruction of the An-225: The second "Mriya" is still waiting in the wings


During the fighting for the Gostomel airport near Kyiv on February 28, the largest transport aircraft of the existing An-225 Mriya (in Ukrainian, “dream”) was damaged by fire. Local media write that the restoration of the flying machine will require about three billion dollars and more than five years of work, if at all possible.



As The Drive, in turn, writes, Kyiv has a hope that another “Dream” can rise from the “ashes of oblivion”. The second An-225 glider was located at the Antonov plant near the Ukrainian capital for decades. With a strong desire, the aircraft can be completed by manufacturing the wing, tail unit and developing the electronic filling.


The construction of the second "Mriya" began in 1989, but the collapse of the USSR in 1991 led to a delay in the implementation of the project, and work was stopped three years later. "Antonov" has already tried to resume the construction of the second "Mriya", but did not receive the necessary funding.

The completion of the second An-225 aircraft will probably not be among the main priorities of the state, but it will become a “pride” for the country and a symbol of its future strengthening, media writes.

    What state? Urkania will be reduced to Kukuevshchina with all the debts accumulated since 1991 and the infrastructure destroyed during demilitarization with denazification. that's all, it will be the land of wild cherries and small sunflowers.

      No, well, at the expense of the sunflower, you are in vain. Sunflowers are normal. I saw it myself.

        The sunflower kills the soil and if you do not follow the technology, it becomes smaller. It is more profitable to sell sunflowers and some "farmers" in pursuit of profits are now left without fields and crops. Nothing grows but weeds. I have already seen enough of a sunflower in Russia.

    It remains only to start and finish. The main thing is WHY? This mastodon was made to transport large-sized elements of Buran and Energy to Baikonur. Nobody needed him anymore. Take-off of three kilometers (at least, under the most favorable conditions) around the world is only in 10 airports. What to carry and where? Spending loot for prestige? Please take and spend. Build an economy, you can fool around.

      Something wrong with the numbers. Almost all international airports in the states and on the small Caribbean islands have a runway of 4 km. As for space programs - who knows... Space tourism is becoming popular and having the largest launch platform at an altitude of 12 km can be economically beneficial.

    We will carry tourists when we put Caliber, Zircons, and so on. Space in our very poor country is needed as a navigation tool, communications and space intelligence. In other words, military space. To grab a tsytsu and for iiii at the same time with one hand is only if you are dealing with a cow.

    The plane is not Ukrainian! Soviet. Those are two big differences. Ukraine is no more. Little Russia, apparently, will again live and Ukrainians will live in it.

    Restoration for 3 billion. Something a bit too much even for a unique aircraft.

    Political slogans mean nothing in technology. The owner of the product is the one who has the original documentation in his hands. It could be you personally. Buy them from the Antonovskaya firm, and you will be the owner of the project. Today, this is the company. Ukrainian. Here, let them look for loot, and restore this useless iron.
