On this day last year, the biggest aeroplane ever built was smashed to pieces in the opening stages of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The Antonov An-225 Mriya is currently flying again, albeit through Microsoft Flight Simulator. Also, by purchasing the add-on, you might aid in the restoration of the sole real-life Mriya that has ever been finished.
Built in Ukraine Mriya was a six-engined ultra-heavy lift jet transport aircraft. With a wingspan of 290 feet, it was the largest and heaviest plane ever constructed. The Mriya, which made its maiden voyage in 1988, carried dozens of cars at once in addition to Soviet space shuttles, tanks, and diesel locomotives.
Although a second Mriya was under construction, it was never completed. It is intended to reassemble the aircraft using components from the wrecked Mriya and the incomplete airframe. Around $500 million is anticipated to be spent on the project.
