World’s largest plane with SIX engines touches down at UK airfield

With a wingspan of 290ft and a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes, the Antonov An-225 Mriya is the biggest plane in the world. Spotters from across the UK honed in on RAF Brize Norton (BZZ/EGVN) in Oxfordshire on June 24 to witness the gargantuan, six-engine aircraft arrive after a flight from Karachi as ADB3859. The aircraft arrived on runway 07 at around 14:40pm local time. Only one AN-225 was built by Antonov, making it a very rare sight indeed.
