Always look before you leap!
Strangely, on checking with that veritable lexicon of correct information, Wiki thing, they show the outlines of the Hughes H4, 747-8,Airbus A380 and the Antonov AN-225 and there is not a lot of difference in overall sizes.
I noted that this plane carried two 42 foot wind turbine blades from China (Tianjing, near Beijing) to Denmark. Sort of weird that I thought, flying blades!
