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.
