World's largest plane touches down in Toronto
The world's largest plane, the Antonov 225, touched down at Pearson International yesterday, its first stop at Toronto's airport. The massive Ukrainian cargo plane delivered 150 tonnes of mining equipment on this, its final stop before departing on Wednesday morning at around 7:00am. That last tidbit is probably the most exciting bit of news for local plane-spotters.
Watching the an-225 land is an amazing sight, to be sure, but watching it take off is even more spectacular as the six jet engines power up to get the sometimes 500 tonne plane off the ground. It's an engineering marvel, and one that you can bet more than a few people will suffer in the cold to see tomorrow morning. For the rest of us, check out a video of the landing below.
