Steve's Video Of The Day: "Beast From The East" Departure!

I love the Antonov AN-225 "Mriya" (Ukrainian for "Dream"). A true giant, but amazingly nimble. The heaviest-lift aircraft on earth, it is called the "International Cargo Transporter", and is available for hire, if you have a 250 T payload to move! In aviation circles, the AN-225's nickname is the "Cossack", and is quite fitting.
