The Antonov An-225 Mriya (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-225 МріяRussian: Антонов Ан-225 МрияDreamNATO reporting name: "Cossack") is a strategic airlift cargo aircraftthat was designed by the Soviet Union's Antonov Design Bureau in the 1980s. The An-225's name, Mriya (Мрiя) means "Dream" (Inspiration) in Ukrainian. It is powered by six turbofan engines and is the longest and heaviest airplane ever built, with a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes. It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service. The single example built has the Ukrainian civil registration UR-82060. A second airframe was partially built; its completion was halted because of lack of funding and interest.

The Antonov An-225, initially developed for the task of transporting the Buran spaceplane, was an enlargement of the successful Antonov An-124. The first and only An-225 was completed in 1988. After successfully fulfilling its Soviet military missions, it was mothballed for eight years. It was then refurbished and re-introduced, and is in commercial operation with Antonov Airlines carrying oversized payloads.[1] The airlifter holds the absolute world records for an airlifted single item payload of 189,980 kilograms (418,834 pounds),[2][3] and an airlifted total payload of 253,820 kilograms (559,577 pounds).[4][5] It has also transported a payload of 247,000 kilograms (545,000 pounds) on a commercial flight.[6]

Awesome build! By the way, China is resurrecting the 2nd AN-225 airframe! It should go into service sometime around 2020.
This is a big build.
I like this diamond for you.
It is the second largest by wingspan, considering the Hughes H-4 Hercules.
