Journalists showed what was left of the An-225 "Mriya"


During the battles for the Gostomel airport on February 28, the largest transport aircraft in the world today, An-225 Mriya, was badly damaged by fire. Video footage showing the remains of the aircraft has been posted on social media.


At the moment, there are unexploded ordnance on the territory of the airport, so it is not safe to move here. Ukrainian shells hit the hangar where the An-225 Mriya was located, and the aircraft almost completely burned down.


Moreover, according to the journalists of Channel One, the neighboring hangar, in which the fuselage of the second An-225 was stored, also burned out. Apparently, there can be no more talk of recreating this majestic aircraft.

According to media reports, during the storming of the airport by Russian paratroopers, Ukrainian servicemen fled, and the commanders left their subordinates to their fate. Many soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were taken prisoner, and the Russian side provided them with the necessary medical assistance.

    About the unfinished Mriya (only the fuselage tube on wheels), the information is not correct. It is located in Kyiv in Svyatoshino on factory Antonov.

      If we compare the roofs of both buildings, then in one case the windows are three-section, in the other - two. The Mriya's fuselage stands under two-section windows, and this is a hangar in Gostomel.

        Well, if you look at yours, then at the edge of the roof there is generally half a row of windows. You do not take into account the opaque force beams that cut off the visible projection of the roof. And if the beams are from the bottom of the roof, then they should not be on top.
        And the question is: why is the unfinished fuselage of Mriya needed in Gostomel (there are still a couple of small ones in there), if there is no production here, but only a flight test base ???

    Putin decommunized Mriya. It is a pity the last flying instance of a miracle from the USSR.
    To put it in this form under a hood, after the victory in Kyiv on the main square, as a monument to the ambitions of Nazi Ukraine.
    Let the children be led and shown what decommunization leads to.

    Of course, it hurts for the plane. BUT: to allow specialists to inspect the wreckage and evaluate for spare parts. In particular, the D-18T engine, which was also installed on the An-124 Ruslan super-heavy transport aircraft. bully

    This is how you do it in your Zaporozhets. Or Zhiguli. In aviation, just for the fact that such a thing can come to mind, they are fired.
