Sunday Aircraft Cheesecake (Antonov An-225)

Via a post that referenced my earlier cheesecake entry on the German Arado Ar 232 "Millipede," I present the Antonov An-225:

Note the many wheels along the rear bottom of the plane, much like the Arado Ar 232:


To get an idea of just how big this plane is, take a look at how small the Russian Buran shuttle is in comparison:


The Buran is about the same size as the US Shuttle orbiter, which takes up quite a bit more space on the back of a Boeing 747.
