Ditto on the Hat Tip for a tremendous project and keeping her flying. I'm just curious why yellow over blue on the paint? traditional UK flag livery is blue over yellow.

If you look from the bottom when aircraft is in the air, you’ll see blue over yellow!!!

I would love to know when it will be in Sanford, Florida USA again. I have missed the landing and take off each time it has been here. Seeing it on the ground made me want to see it land and take off, both.

Wonder how difficult this is to fly....also how much runway needed for full load?

There are documentaries about the plane that you can watch. Try YouTube.

It would be appreciated if you'd keep your ill-conceived comments to yourself. This is not a political forum.

I had the pleasure of seeing the AN225 up close at Toronto Pearson a few years back on one of the coldest days of the year. You need to see it in person to realise the size of this behemoth. I was clinging on to the fence behind it when thrust was applied to the engines. It makes a lot of smoke as it takes off into the sky! It was empty so was soon in the air. It was heavy on the way in, bringing mining equipment for 'up north' :>)
