    thanks for the look at the Volga, don't see one of those everyday here in the midwest!

  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!!
