World's Largest Plane - Amazing

World's Largest Aircraft

There was a little excitement at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas with the arrival of the world's largest aircraft, a Russian Antonov 225. It was there to deliver a very large power transformer for Nevada Power, which has been built in Turkey. Apparently G.E. or Westinghouse weren't capable, or they lost the 'bid' to Turkey.

Note the wingspan is just about a football field length. Aircraft specifications are at the bottom.

Some of the specs are"

Wingspam - 290 Ft.
Height - 89.4 Ft.
Length - 276 Ft.
Number of wheels - 24
Max T.O. Weight - 1322,750 lbs. (Over 660 Tons)
Max payload - 551,150 lbs. (Over 275 Tons)
Engines - six Lotarev D-18T Turbofans
Max Speed - 530 MPH
Cruise Speed - 495 MPH
Range - 8310 Miles
Only one aircraft built and it's not for sale.

This Airbus 340 aircraft was "remodeled" in Waco . Yes, the sinks are solid gold and one of them is Lalique crystal. The Sultan bought the aircraft for roughly $100M; had it flown to Waco , brand-new, had the interior completely removed; and had the folks at E-Systems (now Raytheon) install $120M worth of improvements inside and outside.

Most Expensive Homes In The World: Top Five

No. 1

$139 million (£75 million)
Updown Court
Windlesham, England
Thanks to shifting exchange rates, Updown Court is still, it appears, the most expensive home in the world. And no wonder: The unlived-in mansion encompasses 103 rooms, five swimming pools and its own 50-seat screening room. The property oozes opulence, from the 24-carat-gold leafing on the library floor to the heated marble driveway. With your own squash court, bowling alley and tennis court, you may never need to leave--except to visit the queen at nearby Windsor Castle. It is listed with Hamptons International and Savills.

No. 2

$135 million
Starwood Estate
Aspen, Colo.
It's a record-setting prince--er, price. Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, former Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S., has put his 95-care ranch on the market. The Starwood Ranch estate includes a 56,000-square-foot mansion with 15 bedrooms and 16 baths, several smaller buildings, stables, a tennis court and an indoor swimming pool. Listed with Joshua Saslove at Joshua & Co.

No. 3
$125 million
Maison de L'Amitie
Palm Beach, Fla.
In 2004, Donald J. Trump bought former health care executive Abe Gosman's palace, Maison de L'Amitie, at a bankruptcy auction for $41.25 million. With the refurbished version--complete with ballroom, conservatory, 100-foot-long swimming pool and 475 feet of oceanfront--he aims to set a U.S. sales record. It is listed with Dolly Lenz and Geoff Thomas at Prudential Douglas Elliman.

No. 4

$100 million
Waterfront Estate
Istanbul, Turkey
The fourth most expensive home in the world is in a somewhat unexpected spot. Located on three-quarters of an acre directly on the Bosphorus, this residence offers more than 30,000 square feet of opulent living space in 64 rooms. Details include gilded moldings and crystal chandeliers. The mansion has a rare quay that is nearly 200 feet long. Listed with Alp Sahin at Luici Real Estate Agency.

No. 5
$92 million (£50 million)
Toprak Mansion
London, England
When a Turkish entrepreneur builds a neoclassical palace in modern London, the result is Halis Toprak's over-the-top home. The main living space (not including staff and guest apartments) totals about 28,000 square feet, and includes twin grand staircases, four kitchens and an 80-foot-long grand salon. There is an indoor leisure complex with swimming pool, Turkish bath and sauna, and two acres of landscaped grounds. The property is being offered through Trevor Abrahmsohn at Glentree Estates.
