This is the Gigantic Soviet made Antonov An-225 Mriya “Dream” airplane which is by the far the biggest airplane and it so happens to be a strategic airlift cargo aircraft – The Antonov An-225 is bigger than any Boeing or Airbus you have ever seen and it was made to transport stuff like the Soviet Space Shuttles with enough juice from those six turbofan jet engines to bumble about in the sky.

Watch this clip in 2160P (4K) Ultra HD for amazing details.

This Ukrainian Antonov An-225 badboy weighs 559,577 pounds (Almost 640 tons) making it the heaviest aircraft ever with an impressive 640 ton take off weight – The takeoff weight is what defines a large aircraft according to the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).

It’s kind of hard to grasp how such a huge and heavy aircraft is even in the air with such enormous weight, this bird sure is impressive by any modern day standards.
