The world’s largest and heaviest aircraft landed in Athens in Wednesday. The Soviet-made An-225 Mriya has a cabin length of 84 metres and can carry 16 containers, 80 passenger cars and even an entire Boeing 737. Designed to carry the Soviet
Buran space shuttle on its top, it successfully completed its maiden flight in 1988. The shuttle was reportedly in Greece to transport medical supplies from China to Athens.
This was the 6th visit of the AN-225 Mriya to Athens.
