    Hell of a fate for such a magnificent plane. Last century, I had an opportunity to go on board, a local company had chartered it to haul cargo to Europe in a hurry.

    Too bad they did not think of moving it to a neighboring country before the hostilities started.

    The heaviest aircraft ever built didn't crash. It was the barbaric Russians who crashed on the Antonov An-225.

    Not many aircraft, anywhere in the world, have crashed themselves inside a hangar.

    A huge loss, not one that will probably ever be replaced
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products
