Those two last posts are my wetdreams , I've seen the 124 in Asia, I yet have to see the 225, if the 124 looks impressive I can only imagine how the "Mriya" will dwarf any other plane in its sorroundings.

I wonder why somebody hasn't thought up the bright idea of refurbishing An-2's and putting a Pratt & Whitney PT6 turboprop engine on the nose in place of the original radial engine so it can be certified by the FAA and EASA to carry passengers and cargo. This modified An-2 would (surprisingly) find many buyers in Alaska and northern Canada, where short take off and landing in rough conditions are a must for "bush flying."

Where there’s demand, there will be supply. Ukrainian planes do not want to see in the American market. I think that this is mainly a political problem, not a technical one.

Ukraine's Mriya, Ruslan aircraft carry special commercial cargo in interests of foreign customers

Quote:

The An-225 Mriya super-heavy transport aircraft, which has a carrying capacity of 250 tonnes, and the An-124-100 Ruslan heavy transport aircraftwith a carrying capacity of 150 tonnes of Antonov Airlines (Kyiv) have transported special commercial cargo in the interests of foreign customers, the press service of Antonov State Enterprise reported on Wednesday.

The state enterprise said that the Ukrainian Ruslan aircraft in June delivered wind turbine blades for a power plant from Wichita (the United States) to Skrydstrup (Denmark) under an order of Geodis Wilson Denmark A/S for Germany's Siemens.

"Taking into account the dimensions of the blade [35.40х3.67х3.50 meters], only the An-124-100 aircraft was able to effectively carry the cargo, as its cargo cabin length is 36.40 meters," reads the report.

"Specialists from all of the sides involved in the project worked on the technology for loading the long and outsized cargo, and the aircraft was prepared for this. The flight was planned and performed in the required term under the approved schedule. This allowed the customer to start testing the blade in the shortest period of time," the state enterprise said.

The press service said that in June, the An-225 Mriya also performed several flights. The Ukrainian super-heavy transport aircraft carried outsized equipment for shipbuilding from Manchester (Britain) to Seoul (South Korea) under an order Korean Express GmbH for Samsung Heavy Industries Co, Ltd. Special equipment designed by Antonov specialists was used during the loading and unloading of the equipment, reads the report.

At the end of June, an An-225 Mriya aircraft delivered industrial equipment with a total weight of 140 tonnes from Seoul to Basel Airport (France/Switzerland) under an order of Chapman Freeborn.

"The An-225 aircraft carried equipment, performing one flight in the shortest terms, and more cheaply than if the An-124-100 Ruslan carried the cargo in two flights," Antonov said.

Antonov Airlines is one of the leading international operators of An-124-100 Ruslan. Its fleet includes seven An-124-100 Ruslan aircraft and one An-225 Mriya super-heavy transport aircraft.

Since 2006, the company has been participating in the NATO SALIS (Strategic Airlift Interim Solution). In December 2012, NATO prolonged the contract for the leasing of Ukrainian and Russian Ruslan aircraft until December 31, 2014.
