The Big Boy Comes To Town…

October 27, 2005

Yesterday at the Windsor Airport, we had a semi-rare visitor arrived with Cargo for G.M. This giant Antonov-124 from the Ukraine was the guest of honor, as this heavy rolled into town.

It’s hard to tell in photos, but the aircraft is massive. Here are some specs: Wing span 73.30m (240ft 6in), length 69.10m (226ft 9in), height 20.78m (68ft 2in). Wing area 628.0m2 (6760sq ft).

A good history and some data is avaialable here

    I remember when this came to town. I was living right by the airport at the time. Thought there was an earthquake or something then I saw this beast. Any idea if/when something like this will be around again?
