That all sounds perfectly reasonable and true.

I know I'm clinging to my story a bit but that can still be 100% true and not preclude the story that the shaping of the hump still came about the way Flight reported it, can't it? Or am I being too obsessive about this


The exact positioning of the hump could be down to what you say
Obsessive? Nah, not obsessive - clutching and denial maybe

Ah the AN-225 Nobody like to one up the US in the size department like the USSR.

They only built one correct?

The good ol' Spruce Goose had a bigger wing span, but obviously couldn't haul more.

I believe the 225 was put out to pasture since the Soviet Union fell and with it went there space shuttle dreams. But some people believed it still could serve a role in the 21st century...So they ressurected it. I believe they have only one, but are working on finishing up on #2.

The Spuce may have worked if aluminium was not in short supply. Hughes had to make it out of wood and it ended up being too heavy to be of practical use.

I doubt if even aluminium would have saved it, both the Bristol Brabazon and the Saro Princess were made of aluminium, the Princess even had the benefit of modern turbo prop engines but they both went the same way as the Spruce Goose.

The only AN-225 is still, I believe, operational and used for "outsize" load shifting around the world.
I even saw an AN-22 last year, a first, and it made my day. Droning past on a trip out if Stansted airport


The Russians sure know how to make some impressive aircraft

You mean Ukrainians


The An-225 can carry a 737 fuselage in its body,and it is probably the biggest plane around now.
