    That is a big plane, I believe it's bigger than the C-5 gallexy.

    The An-224 comes in at Jacksonville International every once in awhile. Big ass jets. Of course when a C-5 comes in its no big deal!

    I love the B-36 Peacemaker. I have a sound clip of one, my God, what a sound. I would love to have served in SAC back in the 50s.

    Yep, it's just like the C-5, just bigger. I had read somewhere that the US of course, could have built something bigger but the US felt it was not nesseccary. It's kinda funny, we deployed to Denmark in 2007. We hired a An-224 to transport our equipment.
