The World's Biggest Airp-lane...

32 wheels! -- Costs more than my house to rotate the tires! The World's Biggest Air-plane, the Russian Antonov 225. Attached are pictures of the Russian behemoth when it came into Medford, OR, to pick up two Sikorsky fire fighting helicopters to take overseas -- it cost $1,000,000 to transport them. While they were loading the helicopters, the Russian pilots (two crews), went into town to buy cigarettes by the case and Levis jeans. It is amazing something this huge can stay in the air. The Wright brothers would never have dreamed it.
