Finally AN -225 Mriya (Dream)
Length 84 meters of the aircraft, the aircraft built four years.
Now these aircraft just two pieces, one Mriya flies, the second is not quite finished and it seems to be in reserve for conservation.
An -124 and -225 An built in Soviet times.
Now, it seems as expected to resume production in Russia AN -124 at Ulyanovsk plant.
regard to the resumption of AN -225?
The big question, due to the economic situation, Ukraine can not afford to build yet another such aircraft.
Second Mriyu which has not completed since Soviet times probably will complete if the customer will allocate money for the completion of the aircraft.
On completion of the second AN -225 which began to build in 1989 the last century still need $ 120 million.
