The World’s Biggest Plane Has Taken Off On Its First Commercial Flight. (See Photos)


The world’s largest airplane has set off on along journey from Central Europe to the Australian Outback. The six-engine, 600 tonne aircraft – which once was used to transport a Soviet space shuttle on its roof – took off from Gostomel airport in Ukraine on Tuesday and will land in front of a huge crowd of aviation enthusiasts in Perth at 10am on Sunday morning.

 Designed and built in Ukraine in the 1980s, the immense ‘Antonov An-225 Mriya’ will have to pass through a number of refuelling stops across Eurasia, India and South East Asia before its 42 tyres hit the tarmac and drop off its precious cargo – an enormous 117 tonne power generator.
