    Big Bird Takes Off

    Ashrunner,

    Too bad you didn´t get to see the An-225 "Mriya" take off - you´ll probably get more chances in the US, though.
    Here are two YouTube video clips; the first one shows the An-225 taking off from Honolulu airport:

    and the second shows the same plane transporting the Russian "Buran" space shuttle:

    hpept,
    This looks very much like the card model you made of the US Space Shuttle and the Boeing 747 Transporter . . .

    Best,
    Bengt :grin:

    Hello Bengt,
    The book is realy OK isn't it?
    Thanks for all the other stuff...
    I've gathered enough information to start designing a model.
    The hardest part is which one, The KM {big is beautifull)
    The Lun (The most perculiar looking) or The Orlynok ( looks like the best documented) I'll figure it out...
    Cheers Billy
