• The largest aircraft in the world
The largest aircraft in the world - Ukrainian An-225 "Mriya" at the time of creation had no competitors in size and still is the largest in the world, though not with such an enormous separation from foreign competitors.
The largest collection of films - it presents online movies and TV shows of any genre. To quickly find your favorite movie, use kinopoisk site.
The original An-255 was designed for the transport of large components of the orbiter, spaceplane, the project "Buran" (supposed to even use the plane as the first booster stage during spacecraft launch - this idea was later abandoned), but so to the project.. limited only starting November 15, 1988 - "Dream" has been redeveloped into a regular cargo plane.
It plans to build two such aircraft, but while on the move is only one instance - the one that used to be carried on itself "Buran", and the second giant until ready only by 70% and is unlikely to be launched in the near future, that is to. . design bureau "Antonov" expects to finance the project, which ceased with the collapse of the USSR. If you see a customer - the aircraft will be completed, but according to rough calculations, it would take at least $ 120 million.
The largest aircraft in the world is shestimotornym turbojet vysokoplanom (so-called planes, the wings of which are attached to the top of the fuselage) with swept wings and tail dvuhkilevoe.
The length "Mriya" reaches 84 meters in height - 18 2 m, the magnitude of its wings is 88, 4 meters, their area - 905 square meters. The aircraft is capable of flying at a cruise speed of 800 km / h (and a maximum of 850 km / h) with a total weight of 640 tons.
To at least roughly represent yourself dimensions of the An-225, we give small statistics: in the cargo hold of the aircraft can carry 50 cars / 16 ten-universal air containers / Monocargo weighing up to 200 tonnes (all kinds of generators, turbines, dump trucks "BelAZ" "Komatsu", "Euclid" and the like).
Practical ceiling is at a height of 11,000 meters, the maximum range of flight - 15,400 kilometers, while the cruising aircraft consumes 15,921 liters of fuel per hour.
The largest aircraft in the world still holds the record for size and carrying capacity in the history of aircraft construction. It loses it only one indicator - the span of the wing - wooden flying boat Hughes H-4 Hercules (later nicknamed "Spruce Goose"), developed by the US Government for the simultaneous transport of 750 fully curb soldiers and launched into the air just once - November 2, 1947 - in connection with those who at the time of its completion the war was over and the need for such a flying car has disappeared. Today the "Spruce Goose" is an exhibit of the Museum of Long Beach in California, still showing unprecedented aerial vehicles 95-meter wingspan.
In addition, the An-225 has set more set of all records relating to the duty / long loads / take-off weight by continuing to run with huge cargo between the mainland and continents, in spite of its already quite advanced age.
