Making only its second visit to Manchester, the worlds largest aircraft, the Russian Antonov 225 UR-82060 arrived on 23 Right early this afternoon. It is due to night-stop and depart tomorrow morning. Unfortunately the weather wasn't very kind for its arrival with thick cloud and poor light, coupled with some noticeable heat haze meaning the photos are not the best!
Looks like everyone has their camera out today ..... the RVP looking packed behind!
The last time this aircraft visited was seven years ago, back in October 2006 and wearing a different colour scheme, these two photos were taken then.
