    "Gorilla In The Mist" - World Airways MD-11 N803DE (ex-DAL bird) painted in the retro "Operation Babylift" commemorative scheme. "Babylift" was the effort to get South Vietnamese children out before the fall of Saigon.

  4. Very nice shots.
     
  5. Thanks all...

    Wade, I guess we're spoiled down here. We get all three of the commercial AN124 operators here: Volga-Dnepr, Polet and Antonov Design Bureau. Wouldn't mind seeing the Libyan bird, but I think that's unlikely. Caught the AN225 here once, too.
     
  6. Man, that is a lot of main gear!

  8. Very nice! I have seen the AN-124 several times - in Windsor, Ontario and in Montreal. It is quite a sight!!
