Reasonably busy weekend. Ended up having to work Sat. and Sun. Saturday was attending an Air Show (pictured with this post). The planes involved were all Antonov transport aircraft, so the demonstrations were kind of boring. However, a boring airshow in Ukraine is 100 times better than a Ukrainian airshow chock full of excitement. The one neat thing was seeing the An-225 in person. The thing is a beast and even larger than the An-124 that I had done some work with last December. The An-225 was originally designed and built to carry the Soviet space shuttle "Buran" around, so there's only 2 of them in existance. With the Buran program long dead (I think I read somewhere that the only surviving shuttle is now used as a restaurant in Gorky Park in Moscow), it now operates as the largest cargo aircraft in the world.
