Some months ago An-225 started to conquer the Western sky. In cooperation with Antonow, British freight charter airlines hire this heavyweight for the transport of overweight loads no other aircraft can transport. With a payload of 250 tons the An-225 can transport more than double the load of the Jumbo freighter Boeing 747-400F, and the maximum flight weight of 600 tons is even higher than that of the Airbus A380; this European jumbo, the world's largest passenger aircraft started flying in 2005 and weighs "only" 550 tons with full load.
